First Annual Fireworks Contest WEINER

Thank you, all, for your overwhelming participation in the  
First Annual Fourth of July Fireworks Contest Blog Poll.  
The results were... interesting.

Here's a breakdown of the number of blog readers who commented on their favorite firework snap:
Photo 4:  1 vote
Photo 6:  2 votes
Photo Nine:  2 votes
Photo Five: 3 1/2 ( split vote :) ) 
and the overwheming winner:
Photo Three: with a whopping 7 1/2 votes!  :) 

Now, what's interesting, is that I counted the spit vote on the blog poll,
simply because our trusty judges, Benjamin and Chris,
{Nana disqualified herself as a judge because she watched us pick our favs and knew who took each entry}
couldn't decide either!

I know.  I know.  Real TRUSTY judges these guys are!
I mean, c'mon!!  But they decided to declare a split championship.
Seeing how this was the very first ever in the history of the world
Fourth of July Fireworks Photo Contest, the rules were a little... iffy.

Next year, there will be none of that.
It's ON.
And there WILL be a definitive champion!!
Or we're firing the judges.  

But the split championship was giving to photos ONE and SIX.
With photo FOUR as runner up.

Photo One :  Robbie

Photo Six :  Jess


Photo Four :  Lash


So we actually all ended up with a winner in the top three.  :)  
Our Judges are softies. 
Although, they really didn't know who took each pic.  

Here's who took the others:

Photo Two : Robbie  


Photo Three : Jess


Photo Five :  Lash


Photo Seven :  Jess


Photo Eight :  Robbie


Photo Nine :  Lash


I'm taking ideas for a trophy of some sort.
I'm thinking maybe a bottle rocket dipped in bronze.
But I'm up for suggestions :)

Thanks for playing, people :)
