Cubic houses by Piet Blom, Rotterdam, February 2020
-winning entry in the Landscape category of British Photography Awards 2021
Huge thanks to everyone that voted for me in the people’s vote in the British Photography Awards 2021. I didn’t win that bit but I won the overall prize in the architecture section, with the results revealed last night in the online awards event.
Around the world, we’ve had a difficult 12 months since I visited Rotterdam at the beginning of 2020, and my photography has helped me through the stress, the boredom and the losses of loved ones. Just having my camera to accompany on my daily walks has been a help, and I have also had some success in competitions. I was shortlisted in Landscape Photographer of the Year 2020 and Travel Photographer of the Year 2020, and won the Street Photography category of the Monochrome Photography Awards. Last night’s win was a delight, and has boosted my desire to get out there and find more delights to share.
Thank you to all of my blog followers for your encouragement – your comments and our shared laughter (and sometimes moans) keep my step count growing and my Lightroom catalogue overflowing!
