14th Annual Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest
About Barrett Johnson
Barrett Johnson, inspiration is close to home. Near a hill behind
his house, he stumbled upon the barbed wire that netted him first
place in the youth category. Why barbed wire? "I thought
it was really cool. I took a whole bunch of shots and picked
out my favorite one."
Four years ago, his mother gave him a camera for Christmas, an older, manual Nikon with few bells and whistles. Johnson, 13, attends La Entrada Middle School and has lived in Menlo Park for about seven years.
