Photo Competition 2010

At our Christmas family dinner last week, my sister Maria asked me if I were going to do a Summer Photo Competition this year. I thought back on the summer of 2010 and came to the conclusion that I didn’t have that many great summer pictures. Partly because I didn’t have that much vacation since I worked on planning a new project. So I decided to use photos from the whole year instead.

Please, look at the pictures and vote for the best one by adding a comment to my blog entry no later than January 31 2011. Add your name and you will participate in a lottery where the first and only price is a flower bouquet!

February 1 2011 I will leave my present job at Innovationsbron and start working as an Innovation Advisor at Innovation Office West. My new email address will probably be lena.holmberg @ chalmers.se. You can always reach me at my private address lmholmberg @ gmail.com.

Happy 2011!

Lena

Beautiful pictures, hard to pick a winner. After some thoughts, my vote goes to pictures nr 8. To me, it almost defines the landscape of Bohuslän. /Philip Nestenborg

Alla bilderna är vackra. De flesta skulle kunna användas i resemagasin. De två som drar min uppmärksamhet på ett ovanligt sätt är dock 7 och 11. Av dessa väljer jag 7, eftersom det helt enkelt underbart udda och vacker på samma gång.

Hej Lena,

härliga bilder som får tankarna ut på resa!

Bild 3 från Tel Aviv tycker jag är en vinnare.

Att lyckas fånga uppmärksamheten från förbipasserande (även fotografer) med ett jul- och vintertecknat fönster i mars... för att det sedan ska visa sig vara marknadsföring till killen 30 meter längre bort på gatan... var med enkla medel roligt.

Kanske vinnande marknadsföring - och varför inte en vinnande bild ;)?!
