A Harrow photographer has been recognised for his snapping skills as part of a US competition.

Husain Akhtar’s picture of Goodstone Court, at the junction of Headstone Gardens and Harrow View, scooped second prize at the BetterPhoto contest.

It was commended in the ‘Elements of Design’ category, where it faced off against hundreds of other entries. In total, 4,200 pictures were judged in the competition.

Mr Akhtar said he was pleased to have been recognised by the organisers and that it was great to see “a cheerful Harrow building” on the world stage.
