On my first day back in Bodrum at the end of November, I was walking with Jake past the Private Hospital, just down the road from our Bodrum house and noticed an advert for a Photography Contest. I think I've previously mentioned that I joined the H3A photograph workshop this year so I decided to look through my "homework" pieces to see if there was a suitable picture to submit. I found a couple of shots that complied with the "rule of thirds" with which I'd only just become acquainted and after fiddling with their size, downloaded them onto the competition website. Each time I tried, I got a "jpeg false" reply, so gave up and completely forgot about the whole thing. So it was a lovely surprise to get a phone call saying I had come third, won 500TL and a mini check-up at the Özel Bodrum Hastanesi. The prize was presented by the Hospital Director over coffee and cakes last Thursday. So I apologise for a bit of trumpet blowing but I was well chuffed to get into the top three.
