Darby M – Age 14

“I decided to capture this man left alone in a pensive state, as he stares out into nothing but a cloud of fog. This was a silent moment, the ones we all need once in a while. Simply a reminder to slow down every now and then, as living is only made more beautiful when we reflect on it.”

Emma P – Age 13

“When you take a closer look nothing is as nice as it seems.”

Hannah H – Age 13

“My friend’s yellow converse with the yellow line on the road during golden hour.”

Kimmie H – Age 9

“I liked this one because it is a wooden house and the colours are very bright.”

Jaxson S R – Age 9

“This is my brother and we love to walk downtown with our mom.”

6-Sam S – Age 9

“Corby rose garden, one of my favorite places to take pictures ‘cause of all the pretty flowers and the colours are so bright. “

Jordyn D – Age 9

“I took this picture because it reminds me of a little town like the ones that people in movies are in. I think it’s a really cute spot to take photos because there are lots of lights
and trees.”

Alexander R – Age 14

“I took this photo as I was going to a sunflower field and there were bees everywhere. I chose it because in the photo you are able to see the bee’s tongue collecting the sunflower’s nectar.”

Nicholas M – Age 13

the flower”

Mathias T – Age 12

“Skyhawks is well known in the area for football, and this represents a large part of school in the Belleville area.”

Colton B- Age 11

Hally G – Age 10

“The colours are pretty.”

Charlotte H – Age 12
