Photo Friday

Each week, several hundred photobloggers enter a competition on the “Photo Friday” site. A theme is announced and anyone who is interested can submit the URL of one photo on that theme. The following week, voting is opened up to the entrants and the week after the winners are announced.

I’ve entered half a dozen times or so when the theme seemed to fit an image I have somewhere on the photoblog but the competition always has some truly superb images and several hundred entries so I never expected to appear in the winning list. This morning, though, I was surprised to see a spike in blog traffic from PhotoFriday and even more surprised to see that this picture won the last challenge on the theme “Damaged”.

Given the other pictures in the challenge and some of the folks who entered (my picture beat one by David Nightingale, a truly outstanding photographer!) this leaves me feeling very honoured indeed.

Sorry to spend yet another blog post blowing my own trumpet but this one really caught me off guard and has definitely made my photographic week.

Just for the record, I would have scored at least 3 of the other top 5 pictures, including David’s, higher than mine.
