Spirit of Salford Photo Competition

February 03, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I'm really happy to announce that my picture 'Splash' won the Spirit of Salford photography competition/ I was so pleased with this picture, the deadline day for entries had arrived and I didn't feel I had anything in my portfolio which effectively portrayed the spirit of Salford. That Sunday morning, Dylan was asking to go and play in the garden and from there, out into the street. I was initially reluctant to let him go out because I knew there was a big puddle just outside the gate but his momma had just bought him his first pair of wellies so as I took him inside to put them on, I also grabbed the camera as I thought this may give me the opportunity I was looking for.

Just as I thought, the first thin he spotted was the puddle.

He then proceeded to run back and forth through the puddles giving me some great expressions - I chose the picture I entered largely because of the amount of splash in the picture but you can't beat this one for the facial expression!

Unfortunately although Mamma bought the smallest size she could find, they were still a couple of sizes too big and his over-enthusiasm brought him to a soggy end.

Still, I got the photo and once I was able to compose myself (naughty Daddy) I picked him up to go back and get changed.

 

So my idea of the Spirit of Salford is very much about making the most of what you have. Something about making the best regardless of rain or sun and the innocence and enthusiasm of children.
