The Albany Pine Bush Preserve Commission in partnership with the Friends of the Pine Bush Community held its second Pine Bush Perspectives Photo Exhibit November 1, 2015 – January 2, 2016. A total of 41 people entered 111 photos. From those photos the judges had the difficult job of choosing the 30 photos that appeared in the show. At the exhibit opening on November 1st five awards were presented. The judges of the exhibit also gave a brief overview of all of the entries and explained how they made their selections and presented the awards. First place was awarded to Kat Fitzpatrick for her photo Bright Fences – Dark Storm. Justin Scott was awarded second place for his photo Dragonfly Eyes. The Budding Talent award was given to Jeremy Collison the photographer of the best photo taken by someone under the age of 18 and honorable mentions were awarded to Noami King and Angel Rios. There were about 70 people in attendance at the opening. Visitors to the exhibit were invited to vote for their favorite photo and today we are excited to announce the winner of the People’s Choice Award, Jason Matheron for his photo Hungry for Milkweed. Thank you to all of the participants for sharing your perspective through photos!
