The 750,000 Views Contest Winners and Their Photo Choices

The results are in and it's time to announce the winners.

The photo above was selected by BETTLETHUMBS from Southern California.

Title:  Take Our Picture Mr ?

Lucky for me these folks are some kind of web artists and hollered at me because I had the photo uploader turned off on that Facebook Page thingy.

Beetlethumbs nailed the screenshot right at 750,000.


Before I could get from the barstool to the cold beer and start celebrating

MUZA-CHAN from Bucharest, Romania hollered at me on Facebook

"I caught it too...(^_^)" !

Muza-chan aka The Santa Girl, gets around a lot so, I'm not sure if she took the screenshot from home or somewhere in Japan.  But, wherever she was, I know she was watching that view meter.
She nailed it right on 750,000.

This photo of the Guinness World Record Naha Tug-O-War was Muza-chan's choice.


THEN THINGS STARTED GOIN' WILD


It took a few days for me to remember to check my email.

There was a third screenshot floating around and I wanted to giveaway three photos.

A sweetheart from Milwaukee, Wisconsin named Betty had taken one.

There was some sort of problem getting through to me.

Maybe, up north where she lives the internet pipes get frozen and everything gets stuck.

We communicated through the mail and I got her screenshot posted over on Facebook.

Betty's choice for a prize was this photo of Sueyoshi Waterfall in Naha Okinawa, Japan.


Congratulations Beetlethumbs, Muza-chan and Betty !

Last night I took a look back at where this blog was a year ago.


THIS OLD FOOL WAS GROANING AFTER CELEBRATING 750,000



That's an incredible amount of viewers for a small blog published on the tiny little island of Okinawa, Japan and I wish I could give a prize to every visitor.


For now, all I can do is say THANK YOU

and I wish everyone a

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY, PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR !




PHOTO OF THE DAY:  DOLL OR NO DOLL?
