On Saturday last myself and Bryan attended the awards ceremony at the Clarion Hotel in Cork for the 2nd Cork International Salon of Photography. I was very honoured to pick up 2 awards for my images. It was a lovely evening .. In addition to the awards ceremony and gala dinner, there was a slideshow of the exhibition running throughout . There were also several photography seminars and a trade show on the Sunday. Thanks to the organisers at Cork Camera Group for their super work in organising this salon .
We even made it to the papers too ( Irish Examiner ) ! :http://i315.tifmember.com/v/photos/28982wfk/1339335810
