Giveaway: City Light Photography

Eeeeek! I'm totally stoked about this weekends giveaway. Did you see the title? We have the lovely blogger/photographer, Diana, giving away ANY piece in her shop to one LUCKY D&OC reader!
I bet that most of you are already familiar with Diana's blog, Our City Lights. She was featured on D&OC as my very first Humpday Spotlight (I have a fabulous spotlight coming up next Wed in case you were wondering where the series went).
Diana's photography is a bit whimsical, very well executed, and you feel like you're reading a story when you look at one of her pieces. I DON'T know how you're going to choose a favorite.

1. you spin me
2. Ferris Wheel


3. couch


4. lingerie
5. coral




7. you are my everything
8. tea

How to enter??? (up to 3 entries)
1. Visit City Lights Photography and tell me which piece you would choose if you won.
2. If you're a follower/reader/member/friend of D&OC, leave me a comments saying "I'm a reader!" If you're not a follower, sign up on that silly widget over there. It's easy peesy. Make sure to leave a SEPARATE comment!
3. Blog, Tweet, or Facebook about this giveaway and tell me you w/a link.
Winner will be chosen next Tuesday night, 10/20/09.
Besides being incredibly talented and intelligent, Diana is a very kind person. You should get to know her. Here are her links.

*Blog
*Twitter

Good luck! I hope you all have a lovely weekend. B and I are going to have a little (documented for your pleasure) cooking extravaganza on Sunday and our month of sobriety (yes sobriety) starts today (don't judge)!
I'll be adding lots of FUN pieces this weekend, so be sure to check out the shoppity shop.
xo,
Christina

Yay, so excited about this giveaway! Diana has such an eye for capturing the most interesting scenes, it was tough to choose a favorite. I suppose I would choose "Emma's" if I won, because the moment that I saw the photo, I wanted more than ever to take a drive on Route 66 because now I simply must find out what all of the "Brian Burger" hype is about. Love Diana's blog too, and her tweets are always interesting and thought provoking. Got to love a girl who loves her Polaroid!

Simply gorgeous! I love her site, how can you not be inspired and uplifted glancing at the little moments of life, that I'm sure are taken for granted way too often, that she so effortlessly seems to capture. Picking a fave is impossible, but narrowed it down. because I am a hopeless and irrevocable hopeless romantic, I adore "You Are My Everything" and "Lingerie." I also love the muted colors and reamarkable vintage feel that "Couch" exhibits. Brilliance!

Gabbi said...

I'm such a follower and a fan of both your blog and Diana's amazing City.Lights... Please do enter me! I'd probably pick 'Soaring' or 'Viva Las Vegas'. Such beautiful nostalgia in both.

Have a great weekend dear Christina and very much not judging on the sobriety! My poor sis is trying to quit smoking and it looks like torture and I wish I has the willpower to become a vegetarian.

Calvine said...

Can't decide between lingerie and ferris wheel!! Maybe ferris wheel.... or lingerie...

Kristin said...

They're all so great - I would have to make a game time decision between "you are my everything", "christmas library photo" and "kick off your shoes". Wonderful!
