I must say I felt pretty lonely this morning. It is usually difficult to stay focus whilst shooting, between the morning chit-chats ''hey mate ! how are you buddy !'' ''Hi Francky ! YEW !'' ''Coming out for a swim ?!'', etc...Today, none of that: just me and the seagulls.
The 30 knots of Southerly, 40+ in the gusts, have reshaped the beach, making it look clean and smooth, just like fresh snow. But it also kept everyone inside, leaving me alone........(sighs....).
Now, I wanted to announce the winner(s) for the ''Count how many people are in the shot of the Mental Health Day gathering'' contest. The winner is Guillaume Hauvespre ! He said 242. The answer was 274 + 2 dogs.
I want to give a special price to Patrizio Cara who counted the dogs too. Good effort mate: you're getting a 30x20cm print of your choice too.
Just send me the image number by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get that organized for you.
Have you looked at what's happening in Portugal at the moment ? It's pretty exciting: current n#1 Gabriel Median lost early, which left Kelly with a massive chance to grab the World Title...but he got beaten too, right after ! What a missed opportunity ! Mick, however, is in good shape not to let this chance go. He's still in the run.
The World Title is going to be decided at Pipeline: the ultimate scenario !
Have a good week !
