Many of you will remember that I was spending a lot of time at the start of March walking around London at stupid hours of the day trying to take photos of all of the eggs in the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt.
I spent many, many hours doing so and uploading the eggs online along with helping other people to find the eggs, much like I did with the elephants a few years ago.
Unlike with the elephants there was a photo contest for this event being held by the World Photography Organisation, and so I decided to enter a few of my egg images in there.
I’m pleased to say that one of my images, shown above, won the contest. Hurrah! I must say that this was not the egg shot I thought would win, and certainly not my favourite shot, and for such a fun and upbeat event this image, for me, looks a little gloomy. Not that I care that much of course
Regular readers may remember that I won the St Paul’s Catherdral contest last year, which was also a great honour. I feel the prize for this one, a Sony NEX-7K camera, is slightly more relevant to me than the vase for that contest is. My winning image will also be exhibited at Somerset House during this year’s World Photo London; which kicks off with the World Photography Festival – I went to that last year and it was good fun, so do head down there if you get the chance.
