Photo of the Month - May 2016

Congratulations to our May Photo of the Month winner, Karen Herman Wright.

For the theme of 'Speed', Karen entered "Geoff 'sparks' Swain". The judges thought this image was an original take on the theme. Here's Karen's description of the photo: 

"I felt privileged to spend a morning with Geoff before he retired. He has been repairing shoes for 52 years. This was his last official day although it didn't seem like he was hanging up any boots. Customers were still bringing in their old soles to keep him busy for just that bit longer. I am keen to create a visual story in my photos aiming to capture spirit, atmosphere and real moments avoiding poses that would take the person out of their zone. You can see the rest of this album here and you may even spot a few of Geoff's tears as the memories sneaked out of his eyes and rolled down his cheeks. 

Thank you so much. I am really chuffed to win photo of the month with 'Speed' and Geoff's sparks flying."

 Well done Karen! You can view more of the photographic series here.

If you've got a fantastic shot you'd like to share, then enter our Photo of the Month competition. This month's theme is Celestial. Good luck!
