    Water post waiting for the next spring at a allotment near Pasila

By chance I got info about a photo competition I had never hear of before, Kaunas Photo, two days ago, and for some reason decided to see if I could submit a series. As you might know I’m not a professional photographer, or even striving to become one, but the theme for the year, water, was interesting and I knew I would have quite a nice stash of possibly material around.

So I spent most of my free moments of yesterday to sieve through my photo archive to come up with a set of 12-15 photos suitable for submission. By ten or so in the evening I had a set of my 12 water shots, well in time for the submission deadline at midnight. But while I tried to come up with a title for the series, abstract and a short bio about myself, it hit me: This is not a real series, I’m not a real photographer, what am I doing? The photos are nice, but really??

And so I missed the deadline. Bummer. Maybe.

Anyway, here are some of the picks I had ready for the set. Comments are welcome, I guess that’s what I was really after anyway.
