My photography roots go back to street photography. I came from the school of French photography, influenced by Cartier Bresson. Here's a little "photograph of the instant" that should make people think and maybe even provoke. That was taken last week at Clearwater Beach, FL.

This contest is about to close tomorrow. Please help me and cast your vote right now! Even if you voted previously, the link has changed and you might be able to vote a second time!

The voting system is a little tricky, so if you are willing to help take a look at the directions here (three simple steps). Thanks a lot! Let me know if you have any questions:

1. click on http://thomasclavel.artistswanted.org/yr2011
2. click on the "Vote" button
3. click on the "Like" button that appears in the pop-up window to the left of "Click like to help this portfolio win the People's Choice Award.". If the "Like" button does not appear, just close the pop-up window, refresh the portfolio page on your browser (hitting F9 should do it) and then go back to step 2. Your vote is not taken into account unless you have "Liked" my portfolio.

This is a tough competition and the more people can vote for my portfolio, the more chances I have!

Thanks again for your help!

I tried but it won't let me vote as I am not a facebook member. Sorry.

This is so sad. I'm so glad I'm not selling anything through Paypal and I am reconsidering doing such a thing, ever. As a photographer, I'm horrified that such a work of art would be destroyed by Paypal and I can't imagine one of my buyers destroying one of my works in the name of Paypal. Let's try to avoid Paypal for future payment systems, when I get to sell my work online.

Friends,

I want to give each of you an opportunity to meet in person, discover, and discuss photography together. This coming Thursday I will be presenting some of my latest work at a private reception in San Francisco from 7pm to 10pm. This reception is normally limited to select few collectors, gallery-ists, and artists. But I want to make sure that you too have an opportunity to join us. And I would be greatly honored if you did. My work would not mean much without your appreciation and involvement.

If you are interested and want to join us, just leave a note here or send me an email (thomas.clavel@gmail.com). I would send you the details about the location and the formal invitation (pending availability). I am definitely looking forward to meeting with some of you in person! For sure this will be a fantastic evening of Art and Wine!!

I'm looking forward to seeing you there! Tom.

Thanks +Susan. Did you click on the Like button? Your vote is only accounted for if you Like on the pop-up window that appears after the Vote button is clicked. I know they've designed it in a way that's confusing.

I made a quick trip to New York a couple of weeks ago. I did not really have time to take photographs there (unfortunately, I would love to spend one full week over there just to take pictures), but here is one I took from my hotel room... I hope you like it!
