As your Local Councillor I get used to being asked to deliver on certain things. Yesterday I was asked to judge Wednesfield Photography Clubs first ever competition. I happily agreed, as it was a first for me- Judging such a competition.
It was a little bit of a worry, because I am no photographer! I don’t know anything about the finer arts, that photographers possess.
But I turned up and was so very surprised at how many people were there, and the fact that 65 entries were on the screen for judging!
Wow! I was very nervous as I tooh to the front of the class.
Any way i took the task up with sweaty palms. I spoke a few words, looked hard at the images. Then slowly , very slowly I started to sift through the entries. I heard the whispers, as I asked for one to be put aside, then another. Then the shuffling as I passed over this one, then taht one! After what seemed like an age I had 35 images to go over again. Boy it was tough.
But in the end we pulled out some stunning images, and the winner is this one!
I thought that this ‘Tree Frog’ had everything you would want as a photo. It was interesting, it had great eyes, and it was just simply beautiful……and so from my unpractised eye, I chose it as the best in class.
Congratulations to Sue Rowbotham who won Ist Place – Just Fabulous….to the rest of the entries. I am overwhelmed by the quality and standard of all the entries. Hope you all put them together and make a little exhibition for the people of Wednesfield to come and see..I am sure the Library could be persuaded to take part.
