This year I submitted six photographs to the Monochrome Photography Awards in the USA, and I am delighted that all images received a Highly Commended Award.

I especially appreciate this recognition because this contest is dedicated to the advancement of the classic art-form of black and white photography which has been one of my favourite subjects since I started my photography career back in the glory days of the 1980s.
