Artist - Anne Geddes

Have you seen those cool pictures with a baby poking out of a flower or asleep in the weirdest places, like on a toad stool or in a pea pod? That would be the work of Anne Geddes. Her photographs can be seen on greeting cards, calendars, books, stationary, and photo albums and are published in over 50 countries around the world. These photos have won Anne a number of honors in several professional photography competitions as well as several professional awards. More than 13 million books have been sold world-wide, not to mention her other products.

Born and raised in Queensland, Australia, Anne began experimenting with a camera in her mid-twenties and soon had her style down pat. Many of her distinctive and memorable photos have been published internationally in magazines and newspapers. She now lives in Auckland, New Zealand with her business partner and husband Kel Geddes and their two children.

Another reason Anne has won the hearts of so many people is because in 1991 she created a calendar with her images and donated her proceeds to the prevention of child abuse. She raised over $50,000 from the sales of her calendar in 1992 and donated it to the same cause. Since then, her calendars have been bestsellers and over $1 million US has been donated to help prevent child abuse in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Nope.  I do agree that real-life bullying is often worse than cyberbullying, though, so I agree with your point. Not all bullies would go up to someone and start spewing out hurtful stuff without thinking about it, Um, what? I've been called terrible things by real life bullies. Where was their "think before I say it?" so it does really depend on the bully/cyberbully and the method they use.Nope.

    Before I get started with the prologue I just want to  let you guys know this has not been completely edited yet. I'm going to be posting them in chapters/sections. Prologue The air was still crisp, though the explosion had happened weeks ago. But then again, nothing seemed like it was a few weeks ago. The explosion had come out of nowhere; nobody really knew what happened. Some say somebody left their stove on. Others say somebody made it happen on purpose. I don’t know what to believe, I don’t even know if anyone else is alive. All I know is that my parents died in the explosion. I don’t know if I have any sibling, aunts, uncles. I’m surprised I’m alive, my clothes are still singed from the fire. I haven’t found any supplies. I don’t even know which way I’m supposed to go. I doubt you would want to know my name, but in case you were wondering it’s Blake...Blake Hensworth.
