Just remember: No matter how hard your life may get, you can still make a buck or two by dressing like a freak on a Portland sidewalk. There's always room for one more.

Last week's contest has me in a give away mood. And there's no guessing this time! Just take some time to browse around and then leave a comment on this post. At the end of the week, I'll choose a random winner to receive a FREE set of 12 custom notecards featuring any Crossmark photo from my archives--YOUR CHOICE OF ANY PHOTO!
(NOTE: If you want a better chance at winning, say something thoughtful--like which photos you like, your own interest in photography, etc.)
If you're a photo enthusiast, weigh in with some ideas for my Photo Tips series coming up. (Not a requirement for winning the above give away.) NOTE: Your own photography tips are fine, but I'm more interested in your questions about photography.
For a more ways to win a lot of other things, visit the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival going on all week!

The correct answer? Target! I didn't plan to take photos there, but I make sure I always have my camera with me. Sure enough their World Market section was an irresistable place to shoot around for a few minutes. Just goes to show ya that photo opportunities are everywhere if you take the time to look--and have your camera with you.
So congrats to Tina, Julie, and Mary. Pick out any photo from the Crossmark archives and e-mail me (nathan-at-crossmarkdesign-dot-com) the title along with your preference of glossy or matte finish. Thanks for playing!

You're certainly on the right track! Congrats to those who are throwing in some guesses in the "Where Was I?" Contest. Being the generous guy that I am, I'll answer both questions that were submitted today.
Is it a museum? Nope.
Is it a home decor store? Yes. And no. There's a lot of places where you could buy something to decorate your home, but this place isn't necessarily dedicated entirely to that purpose.
Any more questions?
I predict that we're going to have a winner by the end of the week! Don't miss your chance for a FREE 5x7!

Yesterday's hint seems to have put many of you on the right track. Today, I'll say only that the location is probably surprising to most people. In preparation for tomorrow's hint, let's play 20 questions. Ask a "yes" or "no" question along with your guess today and I'll pick one to answer--maybe. =)

To add to yesterday's hint, not only is this place pretty well known by its name, but there's probably one near you. There's at least one in 47 of the 50 states. Toss a guess in the pile, then stay tuned for more hints!

Leave a guess in the comments! Or, if you're stumped, hold out for tomorrow's hint.

Seems to be a lot of you out there who are purchasing some nice digital cameras or who have a growing interest in photography. I'm kickin' around the idea of offering a weekly photography tip or tutorial as part of this blog.
So whaddaya wanna know? I'll see what I can do to share what I've learned and point you to resources that I've found helpful. So toss me your questions and let's get started!
