Lucas is 7 years old. He’s a really kind, lovely, super active, boy. He learnt to ride his bike just after the Vuelta finished and then rode 100km for Tour de Kids, another cancer charity here in Australia. Check out the video of Lucas riding on Fathers Day 2021—he’s on a 20″ wheel bike now and is fast!
He knows a lot about his Dad, and what was important to him. And he’s super proud to be a judge in his Dad’s photography competition. And yes — I couldn’t be happier knowing that Lucas is part of his Dad’s legacy.
It’s Lucas’s third year of selecting his list. It all started in 2019 when he heard the judges were choosing their top 10’s! Well this year, for the Amateur category he had a long list of 57 images, which he whittled down to 23 and then to his short list of 12. Rocks were a keen feature of his long list! Oh and yes, he did pick the Winner of the Amateur category amongst in his top 12.
It wasn’t easy but he’s made a list of 12 images in each category. He hopes you enjoy them.
Thank you Lucas — for showing us your list, and for delighting us with what interests you and showing us your keen eye for some great photos.
We hope you all enjoy seeing Lucas’s choices, and they inspire you to keep going with your passion.
Lucas & Leeanne
