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!
