Facebook February Photo Challenge Winners

By Ross Pichler


Ross’s thoughtful, understated competition was an instant hit with this month’s judges, making him the winner of this month’s competition. Congratulations, Ross.

Ross discusses his image:

This shot was taken in my home. It’s an 1853-built terraced house, which is showing its age. I captured this image of one of the many cracks which have appeared over the years since we’ve lived here. I like the simplicity of the meandering line against the clean white wall, with just enough of the door frame showing to draw the eye in.

I took the shot with a Canon 60D and a 50mm lens, handheld.
