Hello EPZ Friends

I apologize that I haven't been on EPZ for quite a while. Life can sometimes get busy....and too busy at times. Regardless, I will never forget my dear friends here and how you all encouraged me to grow in my hobby/interest over the years.

Most of my time these days is devoted to making ends meet....the IT day job. I haven't shot a whole lot this year, but I thought that I would share (with those who haven't seen it on FB) an image that I shot earlier this year in a laundromat. It was quite a challenge to shoot in a public place...a woman actually bumped my tripod with her butt mid shoot (while taking out her laundry out of a dryer). It knocked the image off kilter and caused me a few extra hours of Photoshop editing as a result, but it wasn't something that I wasn't willing to overcome. And yes, I did get a few strange looks from the people in the laundromat while I was shooting this image. I can't image why! Wink

I am happy to admit that this image has made POTD on MM (a modeling website). It also has won my very first Editors Choice award on another popular photography website. If everything goes as planned, it should be published in the November issue of the UK's Practical Photography Magazine. I hope that they will send me a copy of the magazine to the states because I don't think that I will be able to buy it here.

Thank you all for your continued support. If I can find a little time, I will try to spend some time checking out what you've all been up to this year.

xoxo

Rebekah

Welcome back, hope you are keeping well. Looks like one of those air machines where you hang on for dear life as the wind gust past you.

Works really well, love the bright colours and the chosen location. Let us know if you don't get a copy of the magazine and I can send one to your work address, if you remind me when the mag is out.
Regards
Jeremy

Congratulations Becks on getting your work published. PP is one of the top photography mags in the UK and is highly respected, I've been reading it for 20 years, a superb shot and deserves to be recognised nationally.
