I Shot It Competition
Pleased to share that two of my images have been awarded the “Mark of Excellence” in the I Shot It Premium Photo Competition.
A commuter, one of many walking wounded, leaves the Edgware Road Underground Station, still clutching his morning paper. A suicide bomber blew himself up on a tube train at the station, killing seven passengers. This was one of four terrorist attacks on the transport system, resulting in 52 innocent deaths. London, 7 July 2005.

As 2015 marks the 10th anniversary of the London Bombings, I entered the image again to remind us all of the horrendous events of that black day and in memory of all who perished and in celebration of all the bravery shown by the survivors and those in the emergency services who went to their aid.

This second image is one of my favourite images; one I found in a church in northern Armenia on the day of the 10th anniversary of the earthquake. As I turned a corner and walked into this annexed room, the light just grabbed me. Seconds later this lady walked in and started to pray. My two thoughts were of how fortunate I was to witness this powerful scene and the second was I hope I expose correctly for the slide film I’m shooting.
The London Bombings image was shot on a Canon 1D Mk II and Canon 300mm f2.8L IS. The Armenian image was shot on a Leica M6 and if I remember correctly, a Leica 21mm Elmarit, using Kodak Ektachrome slide film.
