Weekly Winners – January 4 – January 10, 2009

January 11, 2009 at 2:45 pm 8 comments

My friend, Christina over at An American Expat in Deutschland has been doing a Weekly Winners post since October. It is a photograph-based MEME hosted at SarcasticMom.com. Each Sunday, participants post their favorite pictures that they took during the previous week.

Christina is a great blogging role model. In fact, her blog is currently nominated for Best European Blog in the 2008 Weblog Awards. I’m sure she wouldn’t mind if you happened over and casted your vote for An American Expat in Deutschland!

Anyway, I spent last evening perusing Weekly Winners postings by other bloggers and found it to be quite pleasurable.

And you know, I started thinking… I like taking pictures. I like sharing pictures. I’m usually blogging on Sunday. So I figure I’m going to give this a whirl. So here we go– my Weekly Winners for January 4th – January 10th, featuring the tail end of my Virgin Islands trip:

    I love your last Virgin Island sunset. It looks like it should be on the brochure.

    I second that. The macaw is also a great photo, but that sunset is outstanding. Really looks like something that should be in a book or travel brochure.

    Thanks everyone– it is going to be a challenge to get some good pictures this week… seeing as how I’m no longer surrounded by pristine beaches and crystal blue seas. But I’ll do my best!
