FIRST PLACE

 

Bea Dunsford, "Fun at the Fair"

Description: This is a picture of my husband Ron, my daughter Jessica and my son Phil.  We had just moved to Burlington (1994) and everyone was sad at leaving their friends and family in Montreal.  This is the first time that I saw some smiles.

Judges' Remarks:

The photo of the family on the Scrambler has it all: emotion, action, good technical photography and a great story behind it. While it documents the first smiles in Burlington from a family who moved all the way from Montreal, it is also easy for anyone to identify with the moment as I'm sure we all have a had a ride on the Scrambler.

Technically it's great with the small amount of blur which really highlights the aspect of motion. What brings it home as the winner is the timing of the capture of such joyful expressions.

 

 

SECOND PLACE

 

Sandy (nee Grant) Corbett, "The Odeon"

Description: This is a photo of the old Odeon Theatre at the bottom of Brant Street and Lakeshore Road in Burlington. It was taken in the 1950's and it was a special cartoon show courtesy of the Burlington Optimist Club.  My father John Grant was the manager at this time.

Judges' Remarks:

"The Odeon" photo embraces an era that is near and dear. It reminds us all of a simpler time.  I wish I could transport myself into that line to watch the free cartoons with the anticipation of buying a big bag of steamy hot buttery popcorn for a nickel.

 

THIRD PLACE

 

M. Lindsay Holton, "Granny's Lounger"

Description: The image here is a digital reproduction of my original black & white pinhole photograph, entitled, 'Granny's Lounger'.  I selected this image because it resonates with the idea of time through generations.  A pinhole of light exposes photo sensitive paper. No film or photo lens are used.  To my mind, it's the very best of 'slow photography'.   All of it is a dance with Time.

 

Judges' Remarks:

The photographer describes the pinhole photograph as 'slow photography' and I would also add 'timeless photography'. The capture is a wonderful work of art. Its imagery is what makes it an award winner; I believe that it embodies the spirit of what Burlington life is all about.
