Last weekend was the local village Show, where my family are near Winchester. For the second year I exhibited, and this year I won 2 first prizes, 2 second prizes, the “Photographer’s Shield”, the shield for the best landscape and the cup for the best photograph. Next year I think I will put in worst work,LOL! Thanks to RB for the two matted prints, that both won prizes in the “bigger than 10×8” class :)
I was really chuffed in December when the reporter for the local newspaper asked me if I would give him an interview on my photography. The article was finally published! I was really amazed to find that it was a double page spread, in the middle of the paper.
It is the first time I have had specific press. I have had photos used in papers, and in other publications, but this was the first time it was about me :) It even moved me enough to write my first RB journal entry.
