Every 3 weeks Canon has a competition to give away an EOS 500D camera. It’s called the Hero Chain, and is a part of Canon’s Photochains. There is a theme, and anyone can submit a photo representing their interpretation of that theme in some way. Each person who submits a photo also tags something in that photo, which would be the next theme if they win.
The current theme is ‘Generations’. I was planning on doing something slightly odd or different for this theme, but when I got this photo of Joshua and his great-grandfather, I knew it was the one for me to enter. I am really happy with how it turned out in black and white, too. There are some really good entries, but I really do think that this is up there near the best of them. So, I’m not expecting to win, but I’d be grateful for anyone who can go and vote for me!
You can see my entry here on page 2. It’s unfortunate that you have to register with Canon World of Eos to be able to vote (but, I’ve never received ANY mail from them after signing up).
And of course, if there’s another photo which you like better and fits the theme better, please vote for that. Yes I’d love to win, but not if someone else is more deserving!
