Moment captured for photo competition

editorial image

Teenager Hannah Taylor has submitted this picture as one of her entries for our Life Thru The Len competition, run in conjucntion with Specsavers on Bath Street

Hannah, 17, from Oak Apple Crescent, said: “This photo is one that I captured at the 1940’s Day at Erewash Museum in Ilkeston in June. I particularly loved the amount of effort put into the day itself to represent the 1940’s. The costumes and the dancing particularly contributed to this, something which I feel I have captured successfully in this photo.”

We plan on keeping the competition open until the new year. The winner will receive a digital camera.
