While most of us were lazing about, ColinBrooks (shown above with Blogography and katili) spent Saturday taking part in a 24-hour blogathon. As a part of the festivities, he’s given away a flickr pro upgrade to promote Saturday Scenes. And we have a winner: poppycede has a Flickr pro account and hopefully she will start taking photographs on Saturdays to share with all of us! Thanks for the promotion, Colin!
Please take a moment to visit all of our wonderful contributors:
It’s easy to take part!
1) Take a photo on a Saturday and upload it to a site like Flickr or Twitpic
2) Twitter the url for your photograph to @SatScenes
3) Watch for the next post on Twitter Blog to see a great set of all the photographs together.
I’m looking forward to seeing your scenes!
