The books created for the Best of 2014 Photo Challenge are starting to arrive. I have seen several posts on IG featuring books by both Me2 and myself so I know they are arriving at their destinations. I have received a handful myself and I can understand the enthusiasm that the recipients feel. Opening each book is a true gift; a gift of the heart.
These little books are packed with memories, back stories, unique presentations and of course lots of outstanding photographs. Each book reflects the individual creator, but they also represent everything good about our toy photography community. In short they are amazing!
The stories I have read within their pages reflect the camaraderie, the joy, the relationships and the common experiences that bind us together. I am pretty sure that Me2 and I are the true winners in this endeavor because we will receive eight to nine books each. A veritable treasure trove of photography goodness.
So to everyone who took the plunge and created a book I thank you for making this a truly special holiday.
There where seven participants in the book exchange; Sweden (2), Germany (1), Turkey (1), Columbia (1), United States (3), Belgium (1)
Should we do this again? If so, how often?
If we do this again, would you like the opportunity to exchange with everyone who participates?
I think that this was a wonderful idea, and I do hope you’ll do it again. Maybe I’ll be able to take enough photos this year to have enough for a “best of” ☺
Mike that would be wonderful if you could participate in the future. I guess there is no time like the present to start getting your pictures ready. 😀
In the mean time thank yo for your continued support and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
I finally get to comment! 😉 I would LOVE the opportunity to exchange with other who participate! I am quite jealous that you’ll be the recipient of so many photo books! Maybe you can bring them to Vegas to share?!
Ha! Nothing like a little anticipation. 😀
It looks like we will have to revisit this issue sometime in 2015. I will most certainly bring them to Vegas so you can check them all out. Hopefully I will have them all by then :/
Don’t forget in Vegas we will have the Epic Print Exchange! That will a wonderful keepsake.
I hope you and Cindy have a most wonderful Christmas!
I got mine from Germany yesterday, together with a beautiful long letter of Stephan. Really enjoyed it.
I know my booklets made it to Sweden, Germany and looking at the shot above even to the other side of the States. Looking forward to get some more in my mailbox !
I definitely want to do it again.
Oh my, this has been such an inspiration- I definitely want to do this again. For me exchanging books around the end of the year is fine. And yes, next time I’d love to swap with all who’ll take part! Thank you again, Shelly and Me2, for starting this
I hope you do this again. Next time, I won’t have signed up to judge a contest that involves my reading 130 books in two and a half months, so I’ll probably have time to participate.
My second and third book arrived today. I am soooo happy with them.
We will for sure do this again and do a bigger “wrap up” post once the other books have dropped in.
So far, from my end big thanks to @Herrk and @xxSJC !
