The ever-generous Seth Apter has woken me from my blog-slumber by once more inviting fellow creative-bloggers to select and share something from our archives, for inclusion in his marvellous blog: The Altered Page. I've chosen to revisit a series of images that I was working on last year, just before I began my creative love affair with the iPhone. Rather than simply re-post, I've re-worked the collages on my iPhone. There is no definitive version of each photograph, but a series, suggestive of the passage of time.

Last year's Buried Treasure was a huge success and many new creative friendships were forged. Do pay a visit, but be warned: you could be glued to your computer for several days!

Just before you go, like to share the news that recently, I was a runner up in the Eye'Em Mobile Photography Awards. This is a new international contest, promoting the art of photographs taken using mobile devices. There were over 3000 stunning entries and I am thrilled that one if my photographs (posted below) was selected in the final 15. An exhibition showcasing the competition has been staged in Berlin and I understand that there is to be a publication. I'd like to thank the Eye'Em team for all their wonderful work, promoting this new artform.

I especially like the third one that includes a map as the background. I don't know why I'm fascinated with images that include a map, but I am.

Thank you everyone! Of late, I have been such a lazy blogger, I'm surprised that any of you are still hanging around! I have lots of news to post, but need some time to compose my thoughts.
