Just when I thought this contest couldn’t be any more fun or get any better–it just did.

Two more entries arrived in my inbox this weekend, and they’re from a friend I’ve never met in my home town of Ottawa, Ontario! Yay, Ottawa!

Writes artist Ieneke Jansen, “I am a self-taught artist who was born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario. I absolutely adore the capital, and wanted to “Canadian-ize” my entries for Leap.”

Thanks for entering and for being such a proud Canadian, eh? Ieneke!

Readers, don’t forget to vote for your favourite photo contest entries on my Facebook page here. Rules for this contest are posted here.

Again, thanks for all the fun everyone! I’m thrilled with all the leaps you’ve taken with this contest. It means so much to me that you’d all jump in like this, be a little nutty, and have such fun with this! Keep the fun, creative photos coming!
