15th Annual Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest
"The De Young in the Rain"
About Julia Benton
Benton said when she and her family were in San Francisco on this rainy day, the palm trees looked like umbrellas. The angles and lines of the structure, she added, are what make the picture look interesting.
Benton, who likes to run track and figure skate, picked up photography last summer while traveling in Spain. She has continued the hobby by taking a photography class at Palo Alto High School.
Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund
For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
