Some evenings, as the shadows draw in, the calls from my past get louder.

Got round to some photography, at last.
I entered the Corsica International Photographic Exhibition.  Put In 12 images, got 9 accepted.
One got awarded a RPS Gold Medal.  This I put into out local Photographic Society Exhibition. The judge we got to decide on the best images passed mine by, having looked at it for at least 3 seconds. No comment from him.
This leads me to think that maybe, the 2500 odd photographers for the Corsica Exhibition were a load of rubbish and the work of our society is so much better, or, there is another explanation.
The judge said his choices were those images he liked.  Seems he had rubbish likes!!

It's about time I updated this blog of mine.

Have been somewhat busy with the decorators and some new carpets.  Not done much in the way of photography. 

I did send some to various Exhibitions and am constantly amazed at the results.  One landscape that got accepted abroad got thrown out in this country.  I was speaking to a club judge, recently, who does advise on images to be submitted to the PAGB, for their awards, and he said  that the PAGB does have a 'blind spot' where landscapes are concerned.  He thought, having seen some of my images that I had 'potential'!!  His judging was such that I hope I don't have 'potential' !!
