Expat Life: Two photos in the Stadhuis

Because Aledys said that I should put this on my blog...;-)
Thank you, my dear, for your support! ;-)

Remember these photos?

Almere Oostvaarders, January 2009

From Inverno Flevoland


Almere-Stad, May 2010

From Almere (III)


In June, I've decided to participate in the FotoClubAlmere's contest: the Joost Morssink Wisseltrofee!

I'm not a member of the club, and even so, the members could not participate in the contest. I don't know anybody there. I've never participated in a photo exhibition and my camera is a very simple Lumix.

I just sent 3 photos via email. Let's wait and see... I thought...
Two of them were chosen to the annual 20 photos exhibition of the Joost Morssink Wisseltrofee!
I was so happy! ;-) Do you want to see them ;-)?

The exhibition is in the Stadhuis, B passage, until the end of July. ;-)

I didn't get any prize, but a dear friend of mine, yes! ;-) He was not there to get his 1st prize because he is now with his family on vacation ;-) But I was there and the prize is here waiting for him...;-)

The 1st prize went to this photo:

Congratulations, Adrian! ;-) I'm very glad for you!

What a disappointment....... I had hoped there was going to be a wedding!!! :D (just joking!!)
Congratulations Sandrinha!! Of course you had to post about this very well deserved prize. Maybe this is a sign that there's something good for you following this path - photography!
I'm glad I saw it in person, thanks for taking me there!!!! (though there was no rice shower at the end, snif snif!!)

Congrats for the inclusion! Well deserved! I particularly like the second one, but then, I like architectural shots like that. Congrats to your friend, as well!

The sunset photo is beautiful and very peaceful. You can place this in your bedroom and look at it to relax.

Congratulations for being chosen for the exhibit. And take more photos. They are lovely.

As fotografias estão muito boas.
Gostei, julgo que não é a máquina que faz uma boa fotografia é o olhar de quem por ela espreita.
Parabéns!
Good afternoon. :)
