FLOTSAM Contest Winners!

Air MailWell, here are the results!

At first I was overwhelmed by the idea of choosing one winner from among so many intriguing photos. As I went through the entries several times, a number began to stand out—those that were fine photographs as well as interesting ideas. The cameras were not of professional quality, so the photographers were either very skilled or very lucky!

Eventually I compiled a group of about ten top photos. That was narrowed down to five, and then three. I awarded first place to "Waterproof Words" because it had a simplicity and a magical quality that captured the wonder of reading.

Making the decision was hard—but fun. I hope the entrants had as good a time taking those pictures as I did reviewing them.

Honorable Mentions:
"Sand trout in a wash" is a very interesting picture. Everything about the trees and grasses suggest flowing water, yet there’s no water. Really nice.

"Juneau tourists" is very funny, and very nicely photographed to accentuate the scale.

We'll feature more bookstores' photos here in the coming days.
