The winners for September’s Picture This Photo Contest are in. This is what Charles Mann, the judge for this month, had to say.
“I want to thank the people who took the time to submit a photo for the Autumn Harvest’s Picture This Photo Contest. This was perhaps too broad of a category and I offered a lot of very general information.
As a writer and photographer, I agree with many pundits who have observed that the more narrow and specific the focus, the easier it becomes to locate the creative imagination. To paraphrase Robert Pirsig in “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance,” creative writing about the courthouse is more difficult than writing about the second brick from the bottom on the northeast corner of the courthouse. That said, the fun photos submitted this month reflect the many different interpretations suggested by the Autumn Harvest theme.
