Here's my photo that got into the top 20 of the first photography contest I joined.

I almost got disappointed when I checked out the exhibit held at SM City Davao last April 22-26 because I didn't see any of the photos I submitted. I had a total of four entries plus one from my younger sister. It would be embarrassing if not one got in the top 20 especially if only a few others joined. But thankfully, there it was at the very back of the exhibit. I didn't win anything, but seeing my name and my photo is more than I could ask for. My mother, father and sister got all excited and couldn't wait to go see it.

Yesterday, a classmate from elementary sent me a friendster message. She said she saw my photo at SM. I didn't think anyone I know would recognize my name. I'm glad she liked my shot.

The Davao Gulf Images: thru d lens 2008 Digital Photography Contest was sponsored by the Department of Tourism Region XI. All seascapes and underwater photography were taken at the Island Garden City of Samal.
