"Congratulations! Your photograph, Milky Way, Big Sur, has been selected by Brian Taylor and Bryan Yedinak, for inclusion in the CPA 2012 Juried Exhibition. This year, 286 photographers submitted 1396 images. Only 41 images were selected for the exhibition, so you are in select company."
Such a treat - a Gift-mas present for me.
I've been attending photographic exhibitions at the location of CPA since the 1970s (when Friends of Photography was born) - never dreaming I'd have one of my photographs showing there. I'd just never considered myself an artist. The concept never crossed my mind, seriously never.
And now one of my photographs is going to hang on the walls of one of the world's most highly revered photographic galleries.
Terrific fun !
Update Dec 11: The image is now online at CPA's website at http://www.photography.org/je/image2012.php?n=23
Wishing for happy, healthy holidays for us all.
