Note: the images seen above in the "header" represent the 2011-12 club year contest winners. These images are changed out periodically, with the exception of the current CPC Annual Contest Best of Show which normally maintains a spot on the header for an entire year.

John Stritzinger has been gradually making progress on our new web design.  We expect to hear more about the progress sometime before the end of the club term (June).


This year there were three hundred thirty-five images judged in eight categories, plus one children's entry, representing the work of eighty-nine photographers.  The seventy-three awards were announced at a reception at the Churchville Nature Center on Saturday evening, April 5th, before a crowded room.  All entries are on view the week of April 6th to April 13th.

2014 Apr May - Vicki Randall

Hello,

I have always had a love of photography. When I was a young girl my father had one of those very bright, 8mm movie cameras. I was fascinated that we could go back in time and view an event that had already happened. Today I cherish those old movies.  I loved photography since middle school and have worked with an Olympus, a Minolta and now a digital Sony a330.
