September Challenge, "Triumphant"

Recommended Posts

I hope this is a good challenge. Remember can be large and small triumphs, from sports to little milestones such as toddler's first steps. Be creative in thinking and good luck! This informal and non prize winning contest ends on the last day of September at midnight eastern USA time. Looking forward to seeing your triumphant photos!

 

Remember that you can enter up to three photos (of your own of course).

OK, I'll kick things off with something truly triumphant:

Don't know why I am doing this, after being a runner up last time and being concerned about the possibility of having to organise the next challenge!  - but

It's animals for me and what makes them triumphant is a bit of something to eat!

I was thinking about the photos I have and thought how little I have that would work for my own challenge but just for fun (they can't be considered) I pulled three from my collection and here they are.

Hi Steve,

Missing a trick here with your keywords!  Steven Gregory is the sculptor. Title is 'One of Us on a tricycle'

Have been a lifelong friend of his and love his work. Fortunate to have been paid in kind by The Cass Foundation for photography.

Proud owner of an edition of "Fish on a bicycle" who keeps my back garden in order. And yes he is triumphant!!

Regards

Chris E

Thanks Chris, I wasn't sure of the sculptor, but did know the title but somehow forgot to add it to the caption / keywords ( one of my first uploads to Alamy I think ) ..I have spent many enjoyable visits to the Cass Foundation ( as I live local )and will be up there again soon to see whats changed...... and I must say you are indeed very lucky to have an edition of the fish on the bike in your garden.

 

Steve.
