Watch a Harley drive by and what do you see?
Chances are you won’t catch the nuance and personality that amateur photographer LeRoy Nielson did in his photo “Chrome.”
Nielson, a North Side resident, won the John Sparkes Memorial Trophy for black and white print of the year from the Spokane Camera Club. The yearly competition marked its 65th anniversary last month.
The black and white category was renamed this year for Sparks, a 40-year member of the camera club who died last year.
South Spokane winners were Marilyn Bashore, who won the Griffith color print of the year for “Window Mirage,” and Donna Larsen, best scenic color print of the year for “To the Summit.”
Nielson also won the Talbot Creative Print Award for his print, “Pavers of the Past.” Other North Side winners were Alice Garland, slide of the year and nature slide of the year for her photo of polar bears, and Sister Madonna Buder, the Zaner Miller creative slide award for her graphic image of foliage.
The camera club, with about 40 members, is always looking for interested participants. Call Norma Smith at 325-0334 for more information. , DataTimes ILLUSTRATION: 6 Photos (4 Color)
