send us a snap

May 26, 2008

Those of you who fancy yourselves as photographers can send your shots in to a weekly competition that the Guardian holds called ‘Send us a snap‘. The rest of us can enjoy a fun, often out of the ordinary picture once a week. The photos are accompanied by a good critique by the judges, very enlightening as to what makes a good shot and why. Inspiration for my own holiday snaps!

This was the winning entry a few weeks back, of jellybean children chasing jellybean butterflies in a sculpure by Sandy Skogland at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia. I was slightly disturbed to read the artist’s intention, namely that the piece should ‘remind us that we’re all the same inside regardless of the color of our skin.’ I don’t think I’m made of a sugary mass but oh, wait, I’m not a jellybean person! Phew.
