The morning was somewhat of a blur. I was frustrated, excited, tired and my brain was in a whirl as I tried to think of ideas for the first six themes. At one stage I nearly pulled out of the comp because I thought it was all too hard, but I then realised that this was meant to be a fun exercise, and I stopped putting pressure on myself and began doing what I like to do. Photograph!
At 7:15pm I took my carefully guarded memory card, with my 12 precious images on it, and had it downloaded at the finish waypoint. I was relieved that it was over, and excited that I had got through the day with a mimimum of frustration. I did it!
I couldn’t wait until the Photo Marathon Showcase party, when all the winners will be announced, but mostly because I couldn’t wait to see how 125 other photographers have interpreted each theme, and also to hear their stories of how they enjoyed the day.
Would I do it again? Hell yeah!!
