Today, I received word that one of my images is one of the finalists in the Iconic Place and Things Photo Contest over on ViewBug. I participate in their contests from time to time, just for fun’s sake. The image I submitted to the competition was shot of the London Eye which I took in September 2014. Ironically, I didn’t think much of or about it as I was shooting because I was there as a teacher on a school trip looking after a group of 30 teenage students. It goes without saying that this isn’t exactly the best setting for deliberate or thoughtful shooting. Now I am glad the image turned out the way it did and, of course, that it is now a finalist in the contest. Here it is:
I took a few more images of the Eye which, however, didn’t turn out quite as impressive. They are still nice to look at though.
A little later on that day, I took the other image I submitted to the contest. However, it didn’t become a finalist in the contest. I like it nonetheless.
