I've not bought it yet, but I've just heard from a fellow photographer that I'm featured in the new issue of 'Digital Photo' magazine on page 5. I'd submitted one of my digitally manipulated images a few weeks ago for the 'It worked for me' section, and I received an email from Adam Atkins, Technical Writer for the mag asking for more info as they were considering it for submission. Fame at last!
This is my last upload before I jet off to Whitby for a few days, and was taken on the same day in Leeds as my 'Sheaf Tree' and 'High Rise' uploads. This is one of two stainless steel ball sculptures created by Kevin Atherton, entitled 'A Reflective Approach' and represents the Greek myth of Sisyphus, who was condemned to push a boulder up a slope for all eternity. It just begs to be photographed, and often has, and it stands at the end of Clarence Dock which runs alongside the Royal Armouries. V2 is a closer view of the ball, taken from about 2 feet away.
Just seen the GE Award....thanks, Mark, I'm really chuffed!
