¡Wow! Pixie still can't believe she won the pro account but she's very happy and hopes to see more pictures of her here. As for me, I'm excited to have more bandwidth (coincidentally, it ran out yesterday morning... blush, blush) to share more pictures with you.
Thank you flickr! And a huge thank you to everyone who took and takes the time to comment Pixie's picture.

Found this in my archives and enjoyed reflecting back on the early days when flickr took advantage of its down time.
Original Clogged Crayon Art: UnTrapped Melted Blue Splodge
Here it is . . . the unmanipulated, straight from the wrapper, melted crayon art! (and Chris, I thought I was done posting!) . . .
Eu tinha preparado esse texto e esta foto pra colocar durante a seqüência dos dias da viagem, mas vou antecipá-la! Merecidamente!
Lembram da promoção flickrcolourcontest?
Então, eu ganhei 3 meses de conta pro!!!!!!!!
Nem preciso dizer o quanto estou feliz, né? :D
Uma das coisas mais legais que acho do Flickr, se não a mais legal, é poder conhecer outros lugares, outras culturas, outros costumes.
Um pôr-do-sol em alguma parte do mundo, que nunca se repetirá e que eu não estava lá para presenciar.
Uma praia que talvez nunca poderei ir.
Um inseto ou peixe que eu nem tinha idéia que existia.
Fora as idéias e composições extremamente engraçadas, criativas ou lindas que encontro por aí.
É por isso, definitivamente, que estou viciada.
Viciada em ver, imaginar, com alta resolução e cores lindíssimas, fortes, vivas. Em sentir.
Aqui conheci pessoas, lugares, acompanho o crescimento de bebês, conheci a neve (o mais perto - macro até então), vejo o sol nascer.
Tudo que Deus fez e os milagres da natureza, tudo tão perfeito e lindo que só posso agradecer a Deus por ter olhos - e internet hehe.
E algumas pessoas ainda têm coragem de me dizer que é besteira tirar tantas fotos...
Obrigada à todos aqui - por compartilharem idéias, mágicas, pensamentos e suas visões do mundo.
E por eu fazer parte disso tudo :)
I had prepared this text and shot to put during the trip sequence, but now I'll have to post it before I've planned, and it's really deserved!
Do you remember the flickcolourcontest?
So, I won 3 months of pro account!!!!!!!!
I'm so glad!
One of the great things about Flickr, if not the greatest, is that here I can view another places, another cultures, another habits.
A sunset somewhere in the world that I wasn't and that will never be repeated.
A beach that maybe I'll never go.
A bug or fish that I would never wonder but that does exists.
Besides the ideas and compositions so funny, creative or beautiful that I usually see around here...
That's why, definitively, I'm addicted.
Addicted to seeing, imagining, with high resolution and beautiful and strong colors... To feeling.
In Flickr I met people, places, I see babys growing up, I saw snow (the closer - macro until now), I see the sun rising.
All God's creation and the nature's miracles, everything so perfect and beautiful that just makes me wish to thank God for having eyes - and internet hehe.
And some people still have courage to tell me that is silly taking so many pictures...
Thanks to everyone here - for sharing your ideas, magics, thoughts and visions of the world.
And for letting me be part of all of this :)
I sat and I thought to myself, "What shall I draw that others won't." Boobies? Too obvious. Goatse? Too easy. Think Ken. Think. Think think think think. After several minutes of debating I decided to document the process itself. I am not a math major and realized that the charts had to be understandable to the general populace. I kept it simple.
Eyes of a drunken floozie. Coloured Pencil.

It's the first "photo" I've got 20 comments on. Maybe I've not been on flickr long enough ... maybe I'm not a very good photographer. Oh well.

I love Mac and Flickr!!!!
"Cyan" and "magenta" that are a logo color of a "flickr" resemble relations of "Mac" and "Apple".
To flickr staff.
Thank you for holding a pleasant event this time.

Interesting that this was posted 10 years ago for a silly contest on flickr. And just in the past few years the coloring craze has caught on for real, creating an obsessive past time! Fortunately I'm not into coloring between the lines! But being addicted to any other medium is something I must confess!
I think I should stick to photography. However, besides learning that, I also learned that coloring for awhile was kind of fun and therapeutic. I want to win the pro account. Left side is some pansies that, after I drew them, I realized I was remembering them wrong. I learned that when you need a picture of a pansy, and you have looked completely through a gardening book, and a recent magazine, that pictures are hard to find when you need them. So I continued to draw them from memory. I'm afraid the memory is almost as shot as my drawing skills. The main difference between the two is I used to have a good memory to lose. I also noticed my circles that I began with are more fried egg shaped now.
Thank you for supporting

Look Sir! Flickr is offline!
We're absolutely stunned at the number of submissions to our impromptu colouring contest last week:
It gives me great pleasure to announce that you're one of 14 winners. We've added a year of pro to your account.

My entry to the FlickrColourContest. I had fun! I used colored markers.
Wish me luck in winning a pro account!
This was a good excuse to try a bit of studio photography too.. using just natural light and desk lamps!
So, Flickr goes down, and they run a contest. Which means when you're sitting at work, with not much to do at the end of the day, and you get the opportunity to color - you take it.
I knew those Crayola markers would come in handy some day.
flickrcolourcontest - I won a month free!
