Very proud that I came second (no prizes for second place - except I got two...) in the Whitstable 365 Competition. http://365projects.co.uk/whitstable-photography-competition/ It's a great community project which was extra special here just because there are so many talented photographers in Whitstable.
Above - Me (short - grey) next to lovely Nathalie (French, tall). I actually didn't realise what a big deal it was until I got there. Look - a Mayor!
Above - this is me getting my prizes. A trophy and a print by professional wildlife photogrpaher Steve Bloom. Lots of confusion when I posted this onto Facebook. People thought this was MY photo. Most people know we don't have Hippos in the UK, flumping about in rivers. It was a bit awkward pointing that out. Still....
Here are some more pics of me that night.
Opted for the vintage look. I love a frock and a red lip!
That nervous thing when you know you have to 'got up to the front'!
This is Sandi Tokvig - she is an extremely talented British humourist. http://sanditoksvig.com/ She made us all laugh a lot and opened the show. I was very sneaky and grabbed her then bent her ear for 10 minutes about my new book (more about that later). I shoved my synopsis and first 3 chapters at her. It's worth a try right?!
Massive apologies about missing my blog about my hairdresser - I made a stupid cookery video with my 8 year old son and had so much fun I forgot the time! Please watch. It's hilarious.
