Assignment Gift from Denmark

If you have not seen it, below is the gift given to me by Birgitte of My 2008 BlogI tried to convince her once to change the title to reflect the current year.  I did not ask again as she was quite happy with it. 🙂

Birgitte was one of the first to comment on my blog and to swap links with me as we both started blogging around the same time.  She has supported my assignments from the beginning.  I, and many others, have enjoyed her blog over the years and learned about Denmark’s customs, landscapes and people through her photos and words.

Birgitte’s gift is very special to me.  The creation of photo collages is one of her many talents. I have studied her collages and learned how to put my own together. I have used collages frequently on my blog mainly because of her examples.

NOTE: I have some additional news about the rest of this year’s assignments at the end of this article. Please, scroll down to see. Thank you!

Birgitte, your most thoughtful gift touched me deeply.  The Internet with its instantaneous communication and different ways of presenting our thoughts through photos, images and words, has brought me friends from all over the world.  None more dear to me then you. Tak, min ven.

Assignments for the Rest of 2013:

There will be one in July (think Summer) and one in November.  September’s assignment will be skipped this year as I will be taking a long vacation for most of the month.  I feel I will not have the time while traveling to do it properly. As you can imagine, I am putting in a lot of planning for a trip of this length.  I will post more details as it gets closer. Still over 100 days before I leave. Not that I am counting. 😀

    Phew! I was worried this was going to be an announcement of the discontinuation of photo assignments! Glad it wasn’t! Can’t wait to hear about your trip!

    Scott, your assignments have been absolutely fun to join, but just as important is the psychological effect of having a deadline, and be in a meaningful photo party with others. Your blog has become a kind of meeting place, and I think this could be one reason to keep posting for years; to be in a community. It is not always easy to post regularly, but with the assignments, it is possible to come back after a break. I´m glad you liked your gift.

    And now to the big question; where are you going for one month…? perhaps you and your wife are taking a world tour? If so, then don´t forget Denmark. 🙂

    • Alas, the trip will be confined to North America this time. If I get back to Europe, Denmark will be included.

      Thank you for those comments. I know I have not had the time over these last few months to get around to all of you on a regular basis. The assignments help me to reconnect with all of you, too.

    An awesome gift from Denmark. What a talented sweetie that Birgitte is 🙂 I took some photos of shadows yesterday and thought of her (I remembered Birgitte’s passion for these on your last assignment Scott). It’s interesting how much we affect one another with our writings and photographs.
