CAMERA CLUB ON THE COASTSIDE ... Fresh from a Palo Alto Camera Club exhibition at the Pacific Art League, five club members are showing work at the 2012 Kellicutt International Photo Show put on the by the Coastal Arts League. Photos by Branko Radonjic, Richard Stulz, Deborah Plumley, Marvin Wax and Laurie Naiman are on display in Half Moon Bay until the show moves to the Gallery at Calument in San Francisco from Aug. 2 through Aug. 30.
The show's theme was "Vibrant!" and drew 1,500 entries from 17 countries, according to a press release; 21 were chosen. Four of the Palo Altans won honors. Wax took one of two second-place awards for his piece "Light thru Blinds," which he shot in his home. "At a specific early-morning hour there was a special vibrant light on the blinds that beckoned to be photographed," he wrote in an artist's statement.
Stultz's photo "Up Escalator" won a third-place prize, and Plumley and Naiman were awarded honorable mentions. For more about the show, go to http://coastalartsleague.com .
