I entered a photo in each category — Faces and Places. Lo and behold I got an email today (that I almost trashed because I tend not to read email that start out: Congratulations, you’re a winner) with the lovely news that I’d placed in both categories.
This photo of the spoonmaking man in Sirince Turkey took 3rd prize in Faces. Really, how could his blue eyes not have merited a prize? (Said prize being a book on photography.)
In Places, my early morning shot of Vieux Bassin in Honfleur, Normandy placed 2nd. The paper ran this photo a few months ago in the reader travel photo page so I thought I’d give it a shot. Glad I did — now I’ll be the proud owner of a coffee table book of someone else’s photos.
The paper will run the photos September 2. Autographs freely given ;)
