Branches and Leaves and...Spiders, Oh My

Just a note that, in case you have not heard the news, some of my black and white work was up for a B&W Spider Award. No, I did not win, but, as they say, "it was an honor just to be nominated." In case you have not heard about the B&W Spider Awards, they are an international award honoring black and white photography. This year, they had almost 8000 entries and I was three of 900 or some nominees. You can see my work in the following categories: Abstract, Architecture, and Fine Art, on the website here: Black and White Spider Awards

The judges for this are some high powered camera type people, including some of the folks who bring us the Cannes Film Festival and some editors from Random House publishing, just to name a few. The best part of the entire process is not that I was actually up for such an honorable award (though, let's face it, that was kind of nifty) and not that these fabulous judges actually considered my work, no, I'd have to say the best part of the entire award process is that the entries are really fantastic. I'm truly honored to be among such great work. Really, this is a website you will want to spend some time with if you have any interest in black and white photography at all. There is some spectacular work included, for example, check out the nature category if you want to be stunned. Really amazing work under the covers over there, and I was so happy to be included in with this year's batch.

Until next time...
