I have been sitting on some happy news for a little while! It’s now time to let the proverbial cat out of the bag.
An image of mine won an online competition by Ilford, the makers of fine photographic papers. Entries are submitted from all over the world, and they are judged monthly.
Which photo won, you ask? It was this one of a puffin, taken two years ago in Alaska. The image is one of my personal favorites. Mister Jim loves it too. It is especially sweet that Ilford’s very discerning judges were also smitten. (Don't forget to click to see it bigger.)
I didn’t win any money or other kind of prize. However, I gladly accept recognition for my hard work! My image will remain highlighted on Ilford's corporate web site for the month of May. And I have also been profiled on Ilford's blog. Perhaps you will want to visit these links and find out a little bit more about your blogging friend, little ol’ me.
It’s been a long photographic journey to actually get to a point like this. And I deeply appreciate all of the encouragement that you routinely give me here. It means more than you will ever know!
