Zion Path
Photo by Randy Shiroma

While hiking throughout Zion National Park in Utah, I turned around to take a picture of my girlfriend with the awesome scenery surrounding her. However, the foreground in this shot is so severely underexposed that she is not visible at all. Oh well!

View from Alcatraz

I was visiting San Francisco for the first time....and wanted to visit Alcatraz prison. While inside the old prison I saw this shot looking out towards san fran....I imagined the inmates thinking about the bustling city life and about how that gull was free to fly!

Transitway - Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
photograph by Rick Carroll

I took this shot a few years ago along the bus system transitway in Ottawa. It was a beautiful and warm summer evening. After setting up, the transit police informed me that I had to leave and that I was on private property. Needless to say I asked for a minute or two and then I would leave. Hesitantly he allowed me to stay. Sometimes a minute is more than enough.

Sailing Free
Photo by Betsy Logan

I spend all my free time taking digital photography and then creating computer artwork out of the images. This picture is actually a combination of pictures ... I took most of the shots at the beach in Holland Michigan last August, 2001. And the baby boy is my son, but I took that picture over a year ago when he was about 1 1/2 years old. I cut out the sails, and filled them with the American flag. I originally had a very different vision for these pictures but after the tragedy that struck America on September 11, I was compelled to create a more symbolic picture that would reflect the current times and concerns of the American people. On a personal note ... this is my vision that represents concern for our future and where the waters might lead us. But more importantly, it symbolizes pride for and trust in our strong and free nation.

Rita's Room
Photo by Noella Ybarra

This is still one of my favorite photos, even though it is one of my earliest. This is my sister's front room where her dog Spike sat every day watching the street. After he died, she bought a replica and placed it on the sofa. We don't get to visit often as we're several thousand miles apart, and this was my first visit to her new home. Every time I crossed through the entryway, I would stop and admire the room and finally decided to take this shot. I took two that day and they were about the same. I'd love to know just what I did right as a subsequent visit failed to yield better results.
