If your picture has been blogged here, it means that it has appealed to over 300 art jurors (currently 50 active) for a whole week or more. That is an achievement!!!
... and what does that mean ??? well according to This ... it means your picture is "... extremely resistant to people wanting to get rid of it", :)

Toying with my little digital Canon – an unlikely thing for such a hard-boiled fan of darkroom tan as myself - I was once more assured that there is no such thing as a dull day, if you only press the shutter. Initial endeavours to take any motivating pictures were rather off-putting and nothing more than postcard-like snaps but then, while on a short trip to Istanbul, it all started to happen. Close examination of some of quite random pictures taken there revealed the devil hid in detail – all those mundane and dull snaps, when blown-up and stripped of disrupting colour, suddenly gave away their secret side – which I call ‘Light caught off-guard’. It is my hope that with practice even more astonishing results can be obtained. Here they are for you to take a look at and evaluate.
I'm feeling burned
You taught me a lesson
I didn't want to learn
Why did I come here?
Please tell me again
Why did you ask me?
Don't say you forget
I long for, I long for
I long for my home
I long for a land where
No man was ever known
With no neurosis
And no sadness
I'll pick up the pieces
I'll carry on somehow
Tape the broken parts together
And limp this love around
Limp this love around
Taken under Cromer Pier on a cold twilight evening. My hands were freezing with the long exposure and my feet kept getting wet. Still, an invigorating experience. This image doesn't quite work for me and I certainly don't claim it is an original idea. However, I've wanted to experiment with long exposures for a while now by the sea and finally had the chance when visiting my parents this Christmas. A record, therefore, of my first attempt on which I hope to look back later and smile when I see what I should have done...in the meantime, your comments much appreciated! Happy 2009 to all and thanks for taking the time to visit.

This is the second night I stood across the street waiting for a shot like this.
This is the view from my office in the Financial District.

We are redemption's fortune and the deepest calling.
