hey, I won!

Well, whaddya know. I won third place in the nature/other category of the Px3 Prix de la Photographie Paris competition for my Artifacts of Nature series.

This is pretty cool, because Px3 is one of those rare competitions where I look at the winners and actually like what I see. The jurors have selected an excellent range of styles, subjects and attitudes, and there is some amazing art in there. It’s nice to have been selected to be among them. What can I say, I’m pretty stoked.


Congratulations. I’ve always loved the way that photo is reminiscent of a bird in flight.

As a celebration why don’t you send a large framed print to all the frequent commenters on your blog?

Congratulations on your win… I love the Japanese maple leaf too — great color palette. 🙂
