Over a week ago I was having lunch when an email came through from the organizers of Melbourne Open House. It had a sweet and short message advising me that i had won their annual photography competition in the category of people & crowds. Rather chuffed and excited I took it as a small sign to not give up on this dream and keep actively learning everything there is to know about photography. With New York now upon me expectations are high of-course but I have time to practice and practice. It’s nice to be surprised from time to time.
