UPDATE : Turns out that of the nearly 300 entries received, Bhutanese Children - Sense of Wonder was awarded a Highly commended recognition ... think the kiddies would be happy with that :)
What a fantastic surprise getting an email today from City of Subiaco ...
Congratulations, you have been chosen as a finalist in the City of Subiaco Photographic Awards 2011. Your image, Bhutanese Children - Sense of Wonder, will be displayed in the open category in the exhibition. The exhibition of finalists will be held at Subiaco Library from Monday 12 September until Sunday 25 September 2011.
It's actually a photo that means a great deal to me personally.
It captures the beginning of one of my favourite serendipitous encounters ... I have no doubt we left an impression on these these little curious faces ... but at about this point we had no idea the impact they would have on us - welcoming us, total strangers, into their home and celebrations.
There's so much to be told about this special day ... consider it a 'work in progress' :)
