My wife & I entered a local radio station's photo contest to win a new car, AND WE'VE MADE IT TO THE FINAL ROUND!!!

Glenda was practically crying when she called & told me, because we are seriously broke these days. So, we practiced in the front yard for hours last weekend, trying to set up the best shot we could. Here's where we went to the dealership last Saturday night:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/47534/120/674902.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/47534/120/674902.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Sunday night I entered this photo:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/47534/120/674904.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/47534/120/674904.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Monday morning my vehicle DIED on the way to work.

Tuesday I got hurt at work.

Wednesday, I had to stay home.

Yesterday, I tried to go back to work... an ambulance came & got me from work because of my back.

Last night, Glenda got the call from the radio station - she's in the top 12!!!!! We << SO >> need this break & could use your help!!! Just follow the link below :D :D :D

I signed up but will need to wait until i get home to actually vote as I can't send personal stuff to my work e-mail. (corporate America) Your picture was far and away the best one, and I hope the new car will be a new start for ya! Best of luck.

I agree with Jac - your photo was the best. Love the reflection and connection with the red lips / red car. Very nicely done. Great idea to shoot at night - way too many things can get reflected in a car's surface on a lot during the day.
05/02/2008 07:03:08 PM · #18
Done...and it was an easy choice......yours was the best!
05/02/2008 07:58:18 PM · #19
WOW - thanks everyone! Glenda is just smiling like mad from all the responses & votes :D

We have a pretty good start, and are already super anxious to find out who wins in the end! The voting will continue for a couple weeks, and Glenda even has a chance to go on the radio! (I'm hoping to get MP3 copies of that)

Please please please - pass the contest on to others for us?

And being from teh mountains, I'd expect them to be giving away a low rider, or perhaps a 4 wheeler.
05/02/2008 08:42:23 PM · #23
One more for Glenda.
05/02/2008 09:27:25 PM · #24
