Silver and Bronze: Open Category, Epson International Pano Awards

I entered the Epson International Pano Awards again this year, but decided to see how a couple of my photos performed against the Pros… so I entered the Open Category as well as the Amateur Category.…

But I listened and smiled
and said the right things
and hoped that my mum would believe me.

She told me the apartment was perched on a hill

in a quaint little town near Uzès;
