A Slice of Life
Dave Mason is British born photographer, says I take great pleasure in finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, often documenting the surreal happenings on the city streets.
My preference, regarding the type of images I produce, is that they have an honesty about them, captured in camera with little, if any, post-processing.
Dave’s website is www.davemasonimages.com and is well worth looking at.
Julia Cleaver ARPS makes a return visit to judge tonight’s competition.
