My ‘The Versatile Blogger’ Award

I was honored with ‘The Versatile Blogger’ Award in October this year but failed to reciprocate and spread the good news – my apologies!

So, first of all, I would like to thank Katrina of  Little Trot (one of the blogs I faithfully follow) for the nomination. It was very kind of you!

Secondly, I would like to nominate and share 15 other blogs whose posts I love and follow (in no particular order):

  1. I enjoy Lilly’s  writing tips and articles and photos about day to day life at Apronhead;
  2. I like David Hall’s consistent, almost minimalist, photography style at A Monkeyhanger’s Motley Medley;
  3. I truly admire the award-winning photography of Martina Cross at Martina Cross Images;
  4. I adore the nature photos at Teklanika Photography Field Journal;
  5. I get inspired by Beth Winter’s photos at Sights of Winter;
  6. I learn a lot from Jaina Mishra’s articles and photos about Asian cultures, arts and exotic places at WovenSouls;
  7. I follow the wonderful photography of Adrian Lewis at FATman Photos;

Thirdly, here are 7 things about myself:

I love to travel and, for places to visit, I prefer the exotic over the glamorous.

I'm a loyal Olympus fan and I used an Olympus E-500 in almost all my photos in my blog

My work in humanitarian aid and international development is what allows me to travel

Tropical Fruits

I'm interested in a wide range of photography subjects: basically anything that catches my attention

I used to paint on canvas, now I just paint with PhotoScape

I'm a nature lover
