I’ve always been artistic, but when digital photography came along (I mean became affordable) I found myself picking up my camera more and my pencil less.
I’ve had a digital SLR for 15 months now (thanks for the loan Dad!) and I think my photos are getting better, although I really don’t know as much as I should.
Anyway, getting to the point: last week I had a double whammy. Fame (kind of) at last!
First off, the BTO published my cheeky tree sparrow photo in the spring issue of Bird Table magazine (it’s on page 11 if you have a copy). My first photo to make it in print!
Then I find out I’ve come second in my first ever photography competition!!! Admittedly it’s a very local competition – run by the Sherburn Hill History Club – and there was no prize, only the glory, but hey, I’ll take the win.
What shall I try next..?
