Is only been about 2 year since i took curious interest in architecture photography. Is been a really steep learning curve and i totally enjoy the process. Early in 2015, i submitted some images to participate in Black & White Spider Awards. I totally lost track of what’s happening until i recently received an email that am a nominee for it. For a start it feels good to be recognised for the time and visual effort i put in, especially in an international photo competition, suddenly this feeling of achievement sinks in, feels really good about it. This will surely inspired me to capture even better images for the next competition.
