The Nottingham and Notts BPE Open, Robin Hood, accepted three of my images: The Church In The Sea, Fog of War and Thou Shalt Have A Fishie. Lovely to see Jacob in there!
A statue dedicated to the miners of the former Bersham Colliery, just outside Wrexham, has appeared recently on the slag heap - see this article from the Daily Post.
Took a climb up there last night (not particularly easy!) to take "The Lonely Ironman" at sunset.
Also quite impressed with the panorama function on my new LG G4 mobile phone.
Good to support this local Salon, now that it has gained FIAP patronage. 7 acceptances, mostly established images, but a début in Internationals for Church in the Sea.
GBSPC consists of three Salons - Hoylake, Solway and Carlisle and is organised by West Cumbria Photo Group.
I had 23 images accepted and with three awards - a members award for Fog of War and TWO different judges awards for the mono version of 'Knock Knock Ginger', which is an image I rarely use, but must try more often now! Probably my best International result to date, very pleased with this one. It also gives me pretty much everything I need to apply for the EFIAP distinction next year.
Great to be commissioned to record the details of the Dance of Life mural at Glyndwr University for a forthcoming lecture and maybe publication. The mural, by EM Eldridge (1956), has a number of panels and goes right around the atrium of the BBC building.
