Auckland Photo Contest

Say Cheese

Harbor Lights

June is photography month in Auckland.  They have special exhibits, lectures, etc. all over the area.  One Saturday is designated as a contest day.  All photos entered into the contest have to be taken on that specific day and must relate to the theme, 'My Day in Auckland'.  Last year I submitted several photos just for fun.

This year I submitted three photos, including the two above.  I was surprised to receive a call that I had won second place, (out of over 1500 entries), with the following photo:

 A Day in Bed

I guess it was just quirky enough to attract the judges attention.  After the fact, I felt a bit uncomfortable that I had submitted this, even though I had permission from the 'subject' to do so!
