When I entered this photo at I Heart Faces, I honestly never thought I'd win or even come close, 'cause dang are there some talented people out there! But I like the competition. It makes me strive to learn and practice and (hopefully) improve.
And holy shit, I took third place. I didn't even think they'd share the top ten. But there they were and there was this photo. In third place. And I just couldn't be more thrilled.
And, yes, I'm feeling under the weather today which makes me even more emotional than normal (that's hard to do), but I gotta say that this (and all of your amazing comments) makes those occasional days of feeling like a talentless loser totally worth while.
I love you guys.
