You know that moment when you’ve turned the corner in your physical recovery from an injury?
It happened yesterday.
Just for a lark, I looked online to see the dates of my various photo competitions. And sure enough, the San Francisco Bay Month of Photography competition is accepting entries.
I’ve had some success with this competition, in which the gold medal selections receive a gallery showing in one of the top San Francisco art galleries. I didn’t place gold, but I did get a third-place award for my slitscan photo The Three-Two Pitch, so that was an accomplishment in and of itself.
So over the weekend, I paid the entry fee for five photos. If any get accepted, I’ll be a happy camper.
What did I enter?
I’m entering these five. And if I can take that next step and pick up my cameras and shoot again … which I hope to do at some point … I may enter more images.
But for now, I’ll start with these.
Again … this is part of the long journey to recovery. It’s part of the return to normalcy.
And even if all five of these images get kicked to the curb …
At least it’s better than if I never entered a single image ever again. Right?
