I’ve said it far too many times here - you’ve got to believe in yourself, even when others may not. And this post goes a bit beyond that line of thinking... This image has been submitted a few times and was pushed aside for the first couple of rounds. It first received a Right On! from @fearlessphotographerscom - this is a weekly gallery of photos curated by Fearless Photographers founder himself, @huyhuy. Then, in December, I was happy to find out that I received an Honorable Mention for this image - this is when a photo makes it through the first round of curating, but misses the mark of getting an actual award because it didn’t accumulate enough points from the judges.
I thought that I had only won for one image in the past round of Fearless Awards. I received an email letting me know I won, clicked the link to go to the collection and scrolled until I saw a photo of mine and rejoiced that my bar photo had received an award after multiple submissions. I was happy and continued onwards to play with my son at the pool (we were in Jamaica at the time). It was my wife, who decided to keep scrolling to see if I had any others - lo and behold, I had received two awards in one round! What an honour! It’s just a reminder that for the moments that you may not acknowledge or realize your full potential, make sure you’ve surrounded yourself with folks that may have more faith in you than you do - thanks, Tanya. #ibainthepress
Most people are ugly criers, myself included - Honourable Mention to my bride, Manreet, who just might be the prettiest crier ever.
