Yes, it's Valentine's Day today. And yes, I am, or will be, having dinner with the loveliest person in the world, my husband. I have been looking forward to spending some quality time with Heiko all day long. And the day kept dragging on....
Finally I made it home, only to find an article about myself in the paper. Yeah!!! I am famous, it only took me years.... :-) No, not really famous, but I guess it is something I can be very proud of: I have featured in the South Manchester Reporter, and not because my house had been burgled or I had been robbed, but because of my photography skills!
I am sure you have seen my bicycle image before, I have blogged about it and possibly mentioned it on social media a hundred times already. But, it's not every day that you win an award, so please let me indulge this short-lived fame for just a tad longer. My image won a gold award in the Image of the Month Competition November 2013 with The Guild of Photographers. In 2013, a gold bar was given to 22 images only, out of a selection of about 10.000 submissions. Then, at the end of the year, all 22 gold awards were entered into a draw for the Image of the Year. While my image did not win, and let me assure you there were some cracking pictures in there, I came 4th nevertheless! 4th out of about 10.000. That's not bad, is it!!!
So, now then, I hope you all enjoy your Valentine's evening!!! Lots of love from me xxx
