PHOTOGRAPHERS SHOW OFF ‘HUMAN’ SIDE
This week’s compilation of winning photos from the fifth Lindale Area Chamber of Commerce Photo Contest were taken from the Human Interest category and display the great variety and beauty the Lindale area has to offer.
First place was won by Kim Brody for her “Resting in the Chevy’’ entry, while second was won by James Cowa r t for his engaging “Little Cowboy’’ entry. Ms. Brody won third place for her dazzling “Girl Holding Sunflowers’’ entry.
LACC Executive Director Shelbie Glover continues to be impressed with each year’s entries and the skills of local amateur photographers.
“Amazing is a great term to use for this year’s entries,’’ she said. “Each year I say ‘it can’t get any better than this’ but every year these photos just amaze me.’’
“They show the highlights of Lindale,’’ she said. “We now use these photos over and over at different events that showcase our community and we will continue to use them.’’
Five years ago, chamber officials didn’t know what to expect when they initiated the first contest.
“But we’ve exceeded our expectations,’’ she said. “The first year we were just hoping to get some photos for our walls, but it has developed into something that really brings in some great photos of our area.’’
