Accepted.

Saturday, June 23rd, 2007

Well, I’ve been accepted to the Eddie Adams WorkshopBarnstorm XX.

My friend Don Denton tells me that I’m one of three Canadians amongst the 100 chosen applicants, but I have yet to confirm this; in any event, I am honoured and excited.

I am also happy to report that I was awarded the “Best Portfolio” and “Best Overall Image” awards for my program at the Western Academy of Photography in an awards and graduation ceremony Tursday (June 21).

I have been busy, and have had limited access to computers, so haven’t posted anything in quite some time (read: too long.) I intend to keep this blog reasonably current, but have so far not been doing a great job. I still have limited access to imaging software, so some new pictures will have to wait. In the meantime here are a couple of photos of BMX riding.

Alex Howden Crashes during a BMX race in Langford, BC.  His tire went flat on the second turn -- the flat was caused by a collision with a downed rider earlier in the race.
