Out of My Comfort Zone

Do you like showing off your photos? I do but I hate entering contests were the photo is judged on this-or-that criteria but also by people. Yep people have a tendency to be biased as a species and even if a photo is good it, well we are the mercy of someone likes and prejudices. So entering contests is not with in my comfort zone. I will glad display my stuff but to be judge ? Makes me shiver… So with that out of the way here are the two I entered in Corel’s Matter of Time contest. I decided to be literal and photograph watched I own.

The first I titled ” Then and Now”. The watch on the left is my work watch, well was before I broke it, and the other I believe was my grandfather’s watch.

The second I used what I believe to be my grandfather’s watch. I found it among my Pop’s stuff after he past so I will never truly know. I set it at 4:26 and titled it “4:26 Forever” as 4:26PM was my Pop’s approximate time of death. It is my way of honoring them both. I thought B&W was the best medium for both as well. I will keep you updated on contest results as I can.

    • “4:26 Forever” and it so happened to my favorite and the only one of the two to get through for submission.

      I printed “Then & Now” out on my inkjet last night and will frame it tonight.
      After looking at” 4:26 Forever”I think I can improve on it before printing it to sell. Thanks for stopping by ~John
