Proud to be chicken

Two weeks ago I was at the Orchideeënhoeve in Luttelgeest. As always a day full of colors, smells and lots of beautiful things. The icing on the cake was a poultry exhibition. What beautiful birds and other animals! Here a selection of roosters complete with their beautiful combs and proud look.

Bright colors!

Last week I started a  I started a GuruShots account. GuruShots.com is a photography game, they say. It’s free, but if you want to get ahead, you have to buy swaps, fills and keys. Good quality of your photos does not mean that you end up high. It is determined by votes. Seems very fair, but the system determines whether or not your photo is seen. Only than people can vote for your foto. To be seen you need swaps, fills and keys. And then we are back at the begining of this post.

Fine way to earn money for GuruShots. It again shows that nothing on the internet is free.

Positive about starting that account was that I looked op a lot of old photos. The challenges were about colors, bright colors. So here some of the bright colored shots I entered.
