Fame and Fortune

By danbrann  
I was missing from the site yesterday As i was the The Baltic in Newcastle. The previous evening Martin Boyce was adjudged the winner of the Turner Prize 2011. His work together with others was exhibited at the Baltic,
On a different floor one of my images was also being exhibited as winner of a recent competition. He received 25000.00 I received 500.00.
Whilst I was there I was invited to Photograph Martin But I wanted a North East slant on the image so today I show my effort with Martin being rather insignificant in the frame with the Millennium Bridge forming the backdrop.

Did I enjoy the Exhibition...Well not really as my liking of the arts is a little more traditional but I could be swayed for 25000.00

I could be swayed for 500.00, Danny, but it would be cheaper just to open the bridge Wink

Thought I recognised him. You've done rather well here, a direct personal portrait but one that's part of a bigger picture. You did win the 'People' section of the Reflect comp, after all.

500 quid is not to be sneezed at Danny.
At a rough guess,that's about 150 plus,pints of Guinness !!
I wished this was in Edinburgh,
I would have taken him down to the Dockers Club to get his pic taken.
250 grand at a rough guess is 83,000 plus,pints of Guinness !!
Good shot.
Mick.

Ann of you Google... Port of Tyne .. Then Reflect awards 2011 then The ..People section. The photograph in itself isn't wonderful but it suit the category in which it was entered.

Unfortunately My wife likes expensive jewellery and I had a lens repair bill yesterday amounting to 120.00. I might just have enough left to buy a Christmas pudding.
