Of course I was disappointed to have once again not made the grade this year, but what really annoyed me was the massive carbon footprint that the competition entails. They want large prints right from round one. Such a waste!

An athlete at the European Masters Competition in Torun this year. I love the quiet dignity of this picture – it was such a contrast to the noisy and excited atmosphere in the sportshall.
I spotted this man on his way home from work in the underground station at Corvin Negyed in Budapest. He agreed straight away to being photographed and told me proudly that he cuts the grass at the Formula One track.
I met this woman at Suva bus station in Fiji and she and her friend were happy to pose. I’ve promised to send her the picture.
