Photography & the
The next deadline has been extended to incorporate the 2006 World Cup finals. It is 31 July 2006.
From Gary Pritchard of Blog Droed we receive the winning submission for the fourth quarter of 2005. The picture—in addition to showing some of the passageways and buildings constituting the old town of Baku, Azerbaijan—demonstrates the exchange that occurs as a result of international football. During a walking tour of the 1,500-year-old Azerbaijan capital before a World Cup qualifier on 4 September 2004, visitors from Wales engage locals in street, or courtyard, football. We do not know the result, but the national side of Wales left Azerbaijan with a 1–1 draw.
