I Got Dumped! (CONTEST)

“I Got Dumped” Contest

I needed to dump my Casio this morning and I got to thinking about the random surprises you find when you upload your digitals. Maybe you forgot about a certain moment you captured, or a picture that turned out so much better than you anticipated, and of course 47 pictures of the same shot thanks to the freedom of digital. (You’ll delete them later, right?)

I thought I would share some of my favorite “dumps” with you and you could share some of you favorites with me in the form of a contest! We’re due for a little contest around here, so let’s have some fun with this….

Here’s the Rules for the “I Got Dumped” Contest:

1. Dump Your Camera – whatever is on it RIGHT NOW, don’t take any more pictures before uploading, that’s cheating.

2. Email me your favorite picture from your upload (quatro_mama[at]yahoo[dot]com). It can be funny, completely random, silly, cute, etc. If you have a blog, you can post your favorite “dump” and refer to this contest.

3. Leave me a comment here to let me know that you’re participating, so I can keep a look-out for your email.

4. Your deadline is 11:59pm FRIDAY, APRIL 11th.

6. I will pick out my favorite 10 and post them to this blog.

7. YOU get to vote for your favorite. The winner will receive a mystery (yet to be determined) prize.

Here’s some of my favorites from today’s dump! Can’t wait to see yours!

    Oh man…My husband just spent a good 20 minutes “amusing” himself with the camera taking photos of himself, the ignition to our Camry, my ear…I will have a hard time to choose just one!

    BTW, I am a long time reader, first time poster…I have twins that were just 1 in late March. I cannot IMAGINE doing it with 2 more! You are amazing. Thanks so much for a great blog. It’s a great way to while away the lunch hour, especially when I am trying not to laugh out loud!
