Do you all remember this posting about submitting images for a Nursing home? http://www.photography.ca/Forums/f15/nova-scotians-forum-6674.html. The contest was to provide photos for the Nursing home to help the environment feel more like a 'home'.

Well I received this e-mail today:


On behalf of the Northwood Art Selection Committee, I want to thank you for submitting images for consideration to be put on display at the new facility in Bedford.

The selection process has taken much longer than expected, but I am pleased to inform you that the following images you submitted have been chosen.

I am so excited!! :clap::clap: My mother's parents finished their days at the original Northwood Manor and I was so impressed with the care they received. It's wonderful to be able to give back. Both of them would have been thrilled to see their granddaughter's work on the walls!

I just had to share

Congratulations, very well deserved and that is so great others get to admire your work. That is wonderful, since having others see your art is the goal of an artist a now you will have many whom will enjoy and get something only a photograph can bring. You should be very proud. And for what I believe is a fabulous cause and admirable of you to participate.

They rate as some of your best work indeed Bambi

03-05-2010, 10:53 AM
thanks everyone. Both are on my wall as well. Husband loves the house one. Of course he ruined it by not believing I took it at first :rolleyes:

it's been hard to get good shots lately as the sky is so grey, the snow is so dirty and everything else is brown.

03-05-2010, 01:07 PM
Both are lovely shots. Well, consider hubby's non-belief an inside out compliment. :)

03-05-2010, 01:49 PM
Grand job, well done Bambi. I hope you get the pleasure of seeing them being appreciated on the wall.

Kindest Regards,

03-05-2010, 02:46 PM

03-06-2010, 08:38 AM
congratulations, that is sooo coooool

thanks everyone.
Mike: I submitted a digital image for judging. they requested that I then submit a high quality one and they will get it printed and framed once they decide on the size they want. that way they can have it consistent and good quality.
