A month or so ago, I submitted a photo to Michael’s Camera Store Online site as an entry for their monthly Covershot competition. It was this one of a butterfly, shot sitting on one of the back garden shrubs…….another macro photo with my beloved Canon.
The prize was a ticket to a workshop with Arte Wolfe in March next year in Melbourne. I had read about this well known American nature photographer coming to Australia and his lectures and workshops, thinking I might try and go to a lecture as I could not afford the nearly $400 for the workshop…….
AND I WON!!!
I have been doing a happy dance ever since I read the email this morning, and cannot wipe the grin off my face. Lucky me! What an opportunity and chance to learn so much from such a skilled and talented photographer. ……….Did I mention I’m really pleased??
