Long time, no see. I just added some new photos to my gallery.
I also participated in a Photo Marathon and just attended the exhibition today. I didn't win, but that is al right. It was very satisfying checking out the competition though, I definitely did not fall through and that was uplifting. It must have come down to personal taste.
Yes yes, I know I shouldn't care how others photograph and so on, but I'd be lying if I said that I didn't care. I do. So to me, it was nice that I felt on par with those that won and those that were runners up. It could have probably been me, that is a nice feeling, especially when most of the attendees that years and years more experience than me. It actually made me want to get out there and photograph even more!
