Cheam Camera Club: Season 4: Mono 1

Advance Group

West Pier: High Key printed on Parchment paper - giving an artist sketch like finish. I love this image. Score: 9

Love: I've enjoyed collecting my letters over time.  I've had the idea of displaying using pegs for a little while - I also have some while mini frames I was going to use but they really didn't work. Printed on Oyster Permejet Paper. An idea from a friend also suggested four mount holes instead of the pegs which I think would work exceptionally well - just need to gain more experience on that mount cutter! Here's hoping nothing falls off when its judged! Score: 9 - which was a nice surprise as he really didn't like the pegs!

Great first round - she says doing a little jig in the corner!

On a roll......

British Life Photography Awards - 2017

Very late last night, I received an email to say I was through to the next round of a photography competition I had entered.  In a confused state I thought the email was referring to my recent HC in the British Wildlife Photography Awards..... however, looking more closely this morning - it is in fact a different competition altogether! Another shortlisted entry no less. I would say at this point - I don't expect it to go any further but you know what ....... let's wait and see lol!!!

So I entered five images for this competition.....

Street Photography - which I really don't do very much of....

British Weather .......

The images chosen to go through to the next round... Out of Season.

I'll keep you posted!

When adding furniture to the BH, we decided a very low budget was needed to ensure we didn't go into debt. Car boots and charity shops were visited.  It was always the intention to 'do them up' but of course time was always an issue - until this year (yay). I have REALLY enjoyed this process and actually none of them took more than a few hours to do.
