Just need to comment here....very imaginative so had to, just HAD to, vote for it. You've earned some great comments from others, for this piece. If you're not in too much pain, would you vote for me at National TV Photo contest? thanks, in advance. The three URLs below are pointing to three photographs that I have in an international photo contest. I would like to have your vote for each of them because if I can get 250 votes or more for each I will be entered in the final count for this contest. Should I go on to win, I could have my photograph appear on television and in magazines! Just copy each URL, one at a time, and connect to it in your URL line, usually at the top of your screen, and vote! Please! Please! Please! The contest ends midnight June 30th, 2013 so please don't delay. Maybe even ask your friends to do it for me too?? Just forward it for me. THANK YOU?!

Mike McGlothlen

Over the years Mike has dabbled in painting, sculpting & wood working as well as photography. Mike's turning point in his artistic abilities came when he learned how to use the dreaded computer in the mid 80s, then he could combine his love for art with his photographs. Mike's work has won numerous awards as well as being shown all over the country in galleries and museums. Now after 25 years of Commercial Photography in the High Point area, Mike now creates art full time, living just outside of Dunn North Carolina. "Welcome to the world as I see it. To smile, be happy and laugh as much as possible, that's what life should be about. I hope this shows through my work and makes you feel the same way." Mike
