Peninsula Photo Contest winners give exposure to the world around them

More people than ever are capturing images of the world around them that may have never come to light if not for advances in smartphone cameras and other technology, which now provide photographers more opportunities to create quality images right from their pockets.

Some outstanding photos. What a shame I had my computer stolen out of my room at the Opportunity Center that contained my only copy of what a number of people said was a “prize-winning photograph” of a wheelchair in the parking lot at Town & Country Village in blue light and rain that ended up destroying the electronics of my Panasonic camera (with Leica lens) just to get that shot...
and the PAPD did absolutely nothing to investigate the burglary, as they did absolutely nothing ever about the numerous complaints of victimization by people living there because they dismissed them all as nuts.
Ah well. I finally have a half-decent digital camera now, all I have to do is overcome the learning curve on it. Of course, since I was driven away from the Peninsula I grew up on, I guess I won’t be entering this contest, ever.

Bravo, Sahana! A strong photograph by a wonderful and strong young woman!
