Othery auction of goods and promises 21st March 2014 - Somerset Flood Fund

The only problem with posting photos of some of the lots is that I'm now looking around my living room wondering how many paintings and prints I can put on my walls!

So, I will be tweeting and updating my blog with photos live from auction HQ on the day, but these are the ones I have managed to get my hands on so far.

Sorry guys, they aren't in order as I'm trying to get this done and out there for people to see - I will try my best to re-order it tomorrow for you, but I also have to drive to Somerset after work and a night out!  Yep, poor planning on my behalf!

It still has the original competition identity label attached to the back of the picture.  Some people have doubted the authenticity of the picture, but this was verified by Ilford, who also took part in the judging process. The competition was judged by a panel of judges, including David Bailey, who presented the awards.  The copy of the certificate also has a signature by David Bailey on the reverse, which he signed personally. The picture was taken at Heath, Somerset in 2007. It achieved much recognition over the next few months, including Saturday exposure in most of the National newspapers and also BBC Breakfast television.
