I’m delighted to share this good news! Whilst on assignment on London’s South Bank I came across this gorgeous old Ford pickup truck and couldn’t resist photographing it; very happy that I did! The rusty pipes and concrete really added to the feel of the image as did the single overhead light. The image was shot on my Leica M9 and Leica 35mm Summilux ASPH (FLE).

  1. well done, Edmond 🙂

  2. Excellent! Love the photo. Congratulations! 🙂

  3. Well deserved. STUNNING photo. I really love these kind of images. They’re the kind that the rest of us can hurriedly and totally mistakenly think… sheesh… I could have taken that… yet strangely we never do ! Simplicity and clarity, captured perfectly by someone who really knows their craft. So as a nominee does this now mean we all have an anxious wait to see if you win ? Or have you already won ?
