Fabulous photo giveaway

Today I am happy to announce the start of a fabulous giveaway sponsored by art photographer, Tim Irving :)

The winner of this giveaway will get to choose ANY TWO photographs from Tim's Etsy Page (So awesome!) Here is a bit about Tim Irving (and his photos): "I was given a camera when I was 9 years old and I've been taking photographs ever since. I use old cameras and a variety of old lenses, some I've made myself. I try and give my images a handmade feel."

1. Be a follower, THEN you must comment on this post and let me know what's your favourite photo on Tim's Etsy page
2. Blog about this giveaway for an extra entry (please let me know what the link is to your blog post)
Please note: *Anyone (living anywhere) may enter.
*This giveaway will end on Tues, 8 September and the winner will be announced on Wed, 9 September (Random.org will pick the winning entry). Good Luck, darlings!

  40. gorgeous photos. i really like the saturated colors. it's close to impossible to choose a favorite but the animal photos are pretty amazing. like this one http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=29536731

  41. It took me a couple of days to decide which picture was my favourite. I let it sink in for a few days, checked Tim's website from time to time and knew then that the picture of the four cherries had chosen me. It kept looking at me, saying "Wouldn't I be georgeous hanging in your new kitchen?" And then some other pictures would tell me "No! Pick me! Pick me! I would be fab for your newly painted and refurnished bedroom!" And suddenly I saw my whole house filled with these amazing photos by Tim Irving.
    But for now I'll stick to the four cherries. And I will blog about them soon on http://leveninborgerhout.blogspot.com.

  42. He has some beautiful pieces! My favorite is the French Landscape with Poppies at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=30290145

  44. Well this is a bonus. I started following your blog because you live in Cape Town and I'll be visiting South Africa for World Cup 2010. I thought it might be neat to read the words of a local.

    And, as a result, I also get to enter this cool contest! I struggled choosing just one, but my favorite Tim Irving photo is Wall of Lights.

    It's just so cool!

  45. My favourite of Tim's photos is "French Landscape with Poppies" It is absolutely gorgeous!
