The Robert Cornelius Portrait Award….. nomination…. woo pee……

late last night  i received this email, i was tired been working all day on the ‘rainy monday morning’ post and it was amongst all the other emails that fill my inbox.  i always like to see if there are links to others work, i am very confused by what work is selected by whom, it’s all a crap shoot and so many contest i enter i never hear from. what would camera Obscura be looking for but i entered two images in their contest thinking  my stuff can be pretty obscure.

but every once in awhile some pretty prestigious award or honorable mention comes my way. last year it was International Photography Award and Prix de la Photographie, Paris (PX3) which are pretty cool which another photographer reminded me ain’t chopped liver.
