Local photo reception

Last night was the Xbestpix photo contest reception in Sunnyside. One of my photos was featured, so we braved the cold to check it out. Lots of fun - good food, wine, and best of all a chance to talk with other area photographers.

Tried in vain avoid glare on the print
It was very cool to see photos of our neighborhood - one was from the 1940s - from photographers who clearly love it here. The funny part was that it was a blind judging and people could submit from anywhere so only 4 photographers were actually Sunnysiders. Turns out there were over 200 submissions and only 10 photos picked, which made for very strong work.

The host, TDS (Technical Digital Services) does high end printing and design & they naturally did a great job on the mounted prints. Can't wait to take mine home soon. The show prizes were from the Chamber of Commerce and I also got a citation from the City Council, so it was a very civic-minded night. All the winner photos will be up on the Chamber's site soon if you'd like to check them out.
