Topic 12 - Smile

I took part in the photomarathon yesterday with a fellow photographer friend, what a day, torrential rain and howling winds :(

What a day - we were on the verge of giving up a few times, but we bounced back with encouragement from each other and from Mathew Talfan who was one of the organisers, he gave us words of encouragement on picking up topics 5 to 8. Think we could have easily got on the bus and gone home at this point !!

Until you do one of these you may think it would be easy - believe me it was not !!

I'd like to say a big thanks to all the people who helped organise the event, what a great job you all did.

I have never felt more physically and mentally challenged ever.....so difficult to interpret the topics and guaranteed that when you were mid way through the other topics you would see something better for a previous topic - your topics had to be in order, so no jiggling them about....they are all straight out of camera, no editing allowed what so ever.

We managed to finish at about 9:30pm, I got home about 11:15pm after leaving my house at 7:45am in the morning.........a very long day!!

Well, here are my photos, all 12 of them, flickr has uploaded them backwards but if you view the set they are in order, I'm just to tired to reorder them. I'll catch up with you all sometime, just so tired....thanks for taking the time to look :))

Would I do it again - Hell yeah !!......lol
