Gobsmacked - My Shot....A Winner!

22 Jan 2013 9:31PM
Hi Everyone,

I know how supportive everyone is on Ephotozine and I wanted to share my nice news with you.

I entered two shots into the staff photography competition at the hospital where I work. There were over 300 entries and both of my shots made it into the final 24 judged by the hospital Chief Exec and a professional photographer.

The staff of the hospital (over 6,000) were then asked to vote on their personal favorites to decide on the top 12 shots, and I was delighted to learn that this shot


made it into the final 12. So, the winning 12 shots will be blown up, framed and displayed in the hospital showing our names, and there will also be a calendar made with a winning shot for each month to be sold for charity.

It's lovely to know that one of my shots will make money for the hospital charity fund where it will be put to very good use........a great reason to take photos.

I haven't been uploading for a few months as I've been so busy writing my travel blog www.ageordieuptheganges.com and preparing for my upcoming trip to India in 10 days time. Hoping to get some good shots and start getting involved again when I get back home, and life is back to normal.

Thanks for reading everyone, and if you don't mind a bit of silliness, please check out my blog.

Well done you!

I've been (quietly) following your blog and it's been quite a laugh, in a vaguely informative sort of way.

I'll probably say it again before you go but I'll say it anyway: "Good luck!"

Hi Bren,

Thanks for following my blog............I'm glad you've found it amusing - I don't take myself very seriously at all - it's a great coping mechanism in this mad life!

I can't believe how many people seem to be reading my ramblings - my Wordpress stats show that I've had viewings from 15 different countries! How the hell they can understand the silly Geordie bits I'll never know.

Thanks for the Good Luck wishes - after all of my research on the places I'll be visiting, I think I'm gonna need it Grin
