 First Place Photo Winner - 2013 Sept and Oct.

Music makes my life better, and the world a more beautiful place. That's one thing music and autumn have in common, beauty. That's why in my photo I captured my guitar and the leaves of autumn."

1st Runner Up 

1st Runner Up - Photo Contest on for Sept./Oct. 2013

"This photograph depicts two South African boys enjoying the simple things in life, without the white noise of social media, new up-and-coming technological inventions and sirens of the everyday-city-life. This creates a strong contrast with the Lost Generation that they are and the domestic violence, rape and abuse that is commonly associated with South Africa."
