What a mistake to make.
This is the photo I entered into the Blur Polaroid competition. In hindsight it was an overwhelmingly bad decision as clearly the judges were hallucinated by the beauty of Time Zero film. It's a trap we've probably all fallen into at some point... me certainly.
But the instructions were clear. Sumbit your best photo. In your opinion. So, I did.
I picked a photo that was personally important and I felt had enough drama and beauty in it to have a chance. So, I mustn't feel bad about the subjective decisions of other individuals. Judging a photo competition must be one of the hardest jobs imaginable.
I had the joy of judging an art competition last summer and although there was a clear stand-out winner in my mind filtering the rest into some kind of order was a type of torture.
But i'll always wonder if I had uploaded something garish in Time Zero whether it would have made the cut. I'll throw up some contenders in a bit.
