I think it is funny how Mike's Neck of the Woods are pics of the Island.
Mike, please turn the date off on your camera unless it's needed for something. Just one of my photographic pet peevs. LOL!

Love Lisa

The date you will note is march 2005. I had gotten the camera at Christmas a few months before. I was still trying out all the features. I turned off the date feature shortly after the frosty tree pictures were taken. I suppose the date could be cropped out of the picture. I left it in because I wanted everyone to know that nothing like that is happening in this 2006-07 winter, so far.

I haven't started the vote yet, Squeaky.. I will get them posted tomorrow and give it a week.. Last chance to post a photo! I know I'm going against the guidelines but it gives everyone a chance to submit a shot, in case they forgot.. Confused Since so few participate..

I'm eliminating the Neck of the Woods contest after this... From now on just BBI snapshots.. Very Happy

I agree that it is fun to see but with the lack of participation I'm not sure what to do.. Maybe we will restore it after Winter.. Confused

I agree. The "lack of participation" is disheartning.

One of the problems might be is there is very few on the island in the winter mos to submit "seasonal island photos".

AND if the same folks (3-5) are the only ones sumbitting pics, they they are the only ones that "win" and perhaps discourage competition?

Maybe it shouldn't be a competition. I looked though the photos posted from this summer and fall. There is some truly amazing stuff there! Maybe judged ?

I don't know. No answers. Like to see more get off their butts and submit. It doesn't need to be Nat. Geo. photo quality. A cool snapshot says plenty.

I understand the disappointment... There is a Sharing album where people could post from their neck of the woods shots.. The site is for people interested in BBI and why I made the choice I did. It doesn't have to be a contest.. Heck, just a consideration album for nice shots for Rob to post on the front page.. For that matter, we could do away with both contests and he could pick what he wants from the archives.. I thought having the contests would be a great way to get everyone involved and I was willing to provide the time.. With the lack of participation and my time being consumed in other areas this is a neccessary evil, I guess. Sad

Ditto sentiments. Rob has plenty to do, too.

If no one wants to enter anything, pick from the archives or post some clip art or empty white square with a X in the corner?

You and I have discussed this apathy, haven't we ? Too bad.

You are correct. It does not have to be a contest. All the pictures are great to look at. Sharing is what it should be all about any way.

Lets remember that theres alot of important things that make the island what it is ...

Lets put one of the new teacher on the front .. shes a big part of the island .. I see a side view of her in the pictures that was taken of fun day .. not sure where .. it would be fun to see the kids that go to the little red school house on the island ... the play ground ..

Lets put one of the school .. the firehall ... the churchs ... Hawks landing ..
the bar .. plaunts boat ... the new dock ( well not so new now) the pilot of the boat ... the new airport .... Some of the new places that have been built ...

I would think that we would not have to get permission to put people on the front page as they are here in the site now .. it would be fun to have pictures of the 40 people living on the island this winter but that would take some work to do that ..

I see some good shots in the space you made for us to post pictures of our own ...

The island is a beauitful place and I love all the shots of the island ...
but lets try to put up pictures that make the place that it is ....

How about putting pictures on the front of Ray Plaunts father ... that is history of the island .. the hotel .. thanks to Dan we have some of those old pictures ... maybe we could start with Rays dad and his boat and go along to Rays boat then put pictures up of Curts boat ... and pictures of the Curts crew ...

Just my suggestion ... and thoughts ....
Thank you to all that make this site what it is ....

I had a couple I wanted to submit but have had computer trouble lately. Sort of, we have so many pictures on our computer we had to buy an external drive in order to download pictures from the camera to the computer. Sorry I was unable to submit in time.
