The subject Christa has chosen for this month’s Picture This Photo Contest is
LATE SUMMER GARDEN
“For me, composing a photo in the garden is a little bit like a meditation. I love images that give a calm sense of place, where you can feel that the photographer has spent time with his or her subject, walked around it, gotten familiar with the different angles and what makes the object unique. For this contest, I’d like to see an image with object presence—something that makes us look at an everyday object (whether it is a flower, vegetable, or garden) in a new way. Show me the colors and textures of late summer and the little bits of beauty that can be found in your garden.
