Photos of the Day

Really excited to share that a picture I made whilst on assignment for AP (Associated Press) at Sotheby’s has made the Seattle Times “Photos of the Day”. On an average day a UK national newspaper receives around 16,000 images; I imagine the large US newspapers receive even more, so for this image to have been chosen as one of 29, and also for it to be the leading image is rather pleasant!

Technical details; the image was shot on a Leica M9 with a Leica 50mm Noctilux ASPH lens set at around f1.4.
