Senior Club Competition Winners June 2020

Knysna Photographic Society - Sonia Elliott - and so it came


Congratulations to Sonia  Elliott from Knysna Photographic Society

Sonia is our June   winner with “and so it came”

Sonia wrote:

“The concept came as a result of musing over the origins of the Covid virus.  I believe the earth is simply keeping mankind and its destruction and disregard for nature in check. And so with a casual shake of the hand, it distributes a leveller in the form of a virus devastating to humans, starting in the high rise centre of Cape Town.  The cracked planet, for me, added to the story as a warning of the chaos and retribution to come.  I used my husband’s hand as a model, and so  it is especially great that the picture achieved this win “
