About Anne Mac Kenzie

Anne MacKenzie was having fun playing with reality when she was working on her jolly entry.

She initially captured the photo, "then felt there was little to tie the windows together." She manipulated the image using a photo editing program. She hopes viewers will be able to "enjoy the playfulness" of the image. She describes the creation as "a flight of imagination." The only thing she doesn't like about the picture is that "it isn't really what I would consider fine art photography."

MacKenzie has been taking photos for five years, and is an active member of the Palo Alto Camera Club. She admits that her photography "seems all-consuming lately," but expects to "continue to learn more about it and enjoy exploring photographic concepts." She spends the rest of her time reading and going to films and concerts.
