A page showing a weekly image entered into a twitter competition #WexMondays run by Wex Photographic
This is an image taken from the previous week that I have chosen as my best at that time. I usually find I prefer other shots once I look back at my work post Monday but for the purpose of this competition it is also good to see a spontaneous approach to my weekly work.
I created View 52 to look back at my progress if there is any over a 12 month period. Each year as a new competition starts I plan to add an image here each week as I enter it. With very little success in this competition I tend to use it as a way of ensuring I get out and about to shoot at least once a week as with family life and my work it could easily be a few weeks or month has passed if it weren't for the need to enter a shot. The other benefit is the twitter community. Some of the other photographers entering are very inspirational and take time to communicate and comment on images and their work is outstanding with many being in print in magazines and books as well as online success. It is only by being a part of this competition that I have been lucky enough to meet these photographers and can say 100% they have helped me develop my skills.
