I won Honorable Mention in the Texas Photographic Society’s photo competition called: Childhood.
The juror was Jamie Lee Curtis and in her Juror’s Statement she wrote that she was looking for the “essence, joy, pain, play, boredom, frustration, and elation of childhood.”
They tell me that there were 2,240 images submitted from 11 different countries. So, cool. Very cool. I’m pretty excited. I can’t go to the reception because 1. It’s in Austin, and 2. I can’t get to Austin because…I’ll be in Chile!!!! Rock. More about that later.
For now, here’s the photograph that won me all that fame and all that fortune. I titled it ‘Fear.’
And to welcome 2010.
In an attempt to toast a great year and to procrastinate learning some more Spanish, I’ve compiled a gathering of my favorite photographs from 2009. My opinion might change next week, but here’s what I came up with as of today, January 4th, 2010.
Thank you to everyone who welcomed me into their lives to photograph them. Much love and I’ll see you when winter lifts!
