This week’s photo challenge was wonderful to see! We know that the words “Back to School” can either bring tears of joy…or tears of trepidation (depending on who it is returning to school!) Any way you look at it though, Back to School is a big occasion for everyone! This week gave us a chance to show off a little of our private lives and what we take pride in: our children, of all ages. The new clothes, the fun new school supplies, the personal choices in backpacks, all show a frozen moment we all share in common.
1st Place: Angela Valerie Photography
This week’s Guest Photographer Judge, Misty Keasler, said of the winning photo by Angela Valerie: This image is beautiful and its strength comes from a genuine moment and is steeped in the tradition of documentary photographers such as Lauren Greenfield. This is photography at it’s best – a true moment that easily translates real emotion.
2nd Place: Leilani Price
3rd Place: Kristine’s World
This image also has a strong documentary feel to it. Although the boy in the foreground is the focal point, there are also all these great moments which also seem to have been captured simultaneously with his glance and mischievous smile.
4th Place: Mischief and Laughs
5th Place: Younker Family
6th Place: Pyjammy
7th Place: A Sweet Blue Life
8th Place: Emily Jarvis
9th Place: StinaMarie27
10th Place: SunnyKeri
