Week's End - Hot Off The Press



The BBC has a slideshow featuring some past winners of the Hasselblad Masters competition.

I sifted through the fashion/beauty category on the Hasselblad site & there's not enough time & bandwith (I finally typed it - bandwith, grrrr) to see as much as I'd like. I did not espy a new Tim Walker (yet). Benedikt Ernst's newspaper lady reminded me of the paper tutu by talented Kelly Murry/Jolis Paon.

The competition is open until 31 December. (There's an Up & Coming section, too, so don't count yourself out.) Here's the link to see the rules. Scroll all the way down to the very bottom of the page, the pertinent stuff is there. Hasselblad web-peeps, you should know better.

Can you tell I'm in a hurry? Oof.
Need to wrap things up. I have an impatient cat & an impatient human on my hands. I'm outnumbered.

Carina--I will definitely check out your link. I just realized that it's 23 Nov & I've not responded to these comments. Very sorry.

Simon--this is the natural order of things, no?

Vanessa--I wonder if you might enter the competition?

Yet--it is a terrific & energetic photo, isn't it? Thanks.
