"Going to Work by the Disney Concert Hall, LA"

By Tony Williams

Judge's Comment:

We also loved the dreamy, storytelling quality of Tony Williams' third-place "Going to Work by the Disney Concert Hall." A lone figure of a woman holding shopping bags stands in front of the sculptural, industrial shapes of the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles shrouded in fog and soft blue tones. The soft light adds an ethereal quality to the image and the isolation of the lone figure adds drama and mystery to the scene. The storytelling quality of this image makes us wonder about this woman and where she is headed. I believe that memorable images not only capture a sense of place and being but also leave us curious and wanting to know more about the story behind it.
