mb photo contest

Posted August 25, 2005's first-ever photography contest attracted some of the summer's most sizzling snapshots. The theme was Summer & Heat and the entries were hot. Judge Malcolm Lightner comments: "The unifying theme evident throughout the submissions contained a mixture of both water and light, blended with a touch of summer heat and the overall passion for life. The single image that perhaps best communicates this condition is the photograph 'Untitled Window' from AURA series, 2005 by Susanna Thornton. Congratulations to those who submitted their most compelling visions of Summer & Heat. Thank you all for sharing the experience!
