I am so very pleased to announce that the work for my project Siren Song was awarded Bronze Winner in the Portfolio Category at the 2019 Tokyo International Foto Awards. Here you can see what I submitted.
I thank the jurors so very much! It is truly great encouragement. I also thank Susan Burnstine for all of her support as a mentor. And… how can I not thank the friends I made over the years I have visited the Salton Sea in California’s Imperial Valley. Grazie mille Bill e Tina for making me feel a part of your wonderful family and introducing me to your friends. When I go to the Salton Sea it is like returning home.
fantastic tamar… congrats xoxoxo tim

Just beautiful photos, and congrats on winning a prize! I looked at the tifa site. Lots to see.
Sean’s gone off to Panama to bask in the sun for a week. I’m all alone, but don’t mind the winter. I hope you are managing with your trips to Montreal to help your family.
I didn’t see Karen when she was here – did talk on the phone, though. What an ordeal that must have been.
Have you heard of Steven Pinker? I am reading his book on the Enlightenment – overcame initial reservations, and now enjoying it.
Happy New Year!
