The Votes are In

Nothing Can Stop Me Now
Husband and wife team, Amanda and Kyle Franklin

In a tragic aside, both were recently injured in an airshow in Texas when
their engine caught fire and the plane crashed. Both survived, but were burned.

Last night was the St. Johns Camera Club "Transportation" competition. Here are some of the top point scorers; there were so many outstanding images it was very difficult to judge. Yes, I was asked to vote this competition, so when my own photos came up I had to enter a "0." There is a formula to compute a fair score.

Market Day in Ghana

This is the Life

Heritage Flight
Legends and Mustangs airshow

Fishing Canoes, Ghana

It was so much fun trying to pull together creative images for this competition. We had a total of 12 entries and each did well. I will be contacting those wonderful people who helped us collect ideas for this competition, as my folder is very full of images we gathered before making our final decisions on entry photos. Everyone's a winner!

Stay competition title is Traces of Time.

Our wheels are spinning, what about yours?

Thank you, all. It was a lot of fun, and now we work on the next category for competition - Traces of Time.

Yes, the top photo got a perfect score. The fishing canoes also scored high, just one point under a perfect 18. It was a strong competition for a number of members of the club. Thank you for your interest.

Do you know a fellow named Bob Sheap? He used to do a lot w/ St. Johns camera club.
