I always sort of hate it when people ping me and ask that I vote for them in contests they have entered. I usually do, but inside I’m thinking hey, what if I don’t think you’re the best? I love and support my friends, of course, but when it’s time for me to enter something, I’m self-conscious about saying “go vote for me.”
So, I’m entered in the annual Doors Open Denver Photo Contest. Most of it is juried, but there is also a people’s choice vote, and I’d like to invite you to vote for me – if you think I’m worthy. There are a lot of talented shooters entered, and if you hit the site and decide you like other people more, vote for them. I understand.
If you do like my shots, though, I’d be grateful for your support. I don’t expect to win anything, but it’s always nice to get a little love, anyway.
Here’s how you do it. Go to the contest site here. I think you have to click and like the page, which shouldn’t be too egregious. If you hate the whole concept you can go and unlike it after you vote.
My shots are conveniently near the top since I entered just before the deadline. If your interface is like mine the shots are on the third and fourth rows, or thereabouts.

If you vote for me, many thanks. If you don’t, I’m nonetheless grateful for your support of other photographers, any number of whom deserve your respect.
