I usually keep this blog for posts about my photography but sometimes it is good to celebrate and acknowledge other people's work. I am highlighting the "About Dunstable" Facebook page. There can be some negativity around Dunstable but this page is wonderful at celebrating all that is good about our town and in supporting small businesses. Thank you to Beverley for all you do in keeping the page such a positive page to visit. https://www.facebook.com/AboutDunstable.Bedfordshire/
I had a fabulous time at Benfleet Camera Club. Such a friendly group of people who showed genuine interest in my images and my photographic story. If you live in the area and are looking for a club I would high recommend Benfleet.
A few weeks ago I mentioned that I was looking forward to a trip to Iceland. WOW what an amazing time we had. 10 photographers all who got on extremely well, we laughed a lot and thoroughly enjoyed sharing our photography with each other. I must say a huge thank you to Melvin Nicholson, who organised the trip and made sure everything ran so smoothly, he along with his co organiser Tony Higginson, were on hand to provide appropriate and helpful advice and tips. Thanks guys it was great. Here are just a few of my first edits, more will follow.
I am now just one week away from my trip to Iceland. This will be my 5th visit but the first with the focus purely on photography., I am so excited. I do not know any of the pther photographers on the trip, 10 in all, but we have communicated via social media and they all look like a great bunch. I am hopeful that the Aurora will finally reveal itself to me but if it doesn't I know I will still love my trip.
Thank you to Uckfield Camera Club for your warm welcome tonight. I enjoyed sharing my images with you.
I am delighted to announce that I have been awarded a medal in the London Salon of Photography. The Salon website states "The aim of the London Salon is to exhibit only that class of photographic work in which there is distinct evidence of artistic feeling and execution" and is considered by many to be one of the highest honours one can receive in pictorial photography. The image is called "The Locker Room"
Also accepted was this image called "Curious"
