We received many wonderful (and humorous) interpretations of “Home” this month—including a former ocean-dweller’s home, dogs anxiously waiting at home, an ice fisher’s home away from home, and a little bear in need of a home. Thank you all for sharing a little glimpse into your lives and your imaginations. Here are the winners of this month’s photo challenge.
We love the way the steam catches the light in this cozy photo by Deborah Funk. This looks like the perfect way to settle in after a cold day.
The creative editing in Steve Rich’s photo shows us the secret world hidden away in Grandpa’s workshop. We’re betting many joyful afternoons have been spent inside.
With lovely natural light and crisp details, Lee O’Kelley manages to convey both the mundane aspects of daily life and a sense of intimacy.
The warm glow in Mary Ryan’s inviting entryway fills the image with a sense of anticipation and makes a lovely focal point.
There’s something so sweet and a touch sad about this box of outgrown shoes, shot by Susan Horn. The cracked texture complements the photo beautifully.
Diane Hansen’s well-composed shot seems to be inviting us to settle in for a while. The reflection on the table and the shallow depth of field add to the visual interest.
We’d love to come home to this spot every day. The buildings’ artificial lights offer the perfect counterweight to the setting sun in Richard Black’s stunning landscape.
Diana King offers a unique perspective on the comforts of home with this evocative shot—making the viewer a participant in this moment of relaxation.
Winner: This photo by Peter Welch calls to mind the sense of anticipation and comfort we feel coming home at the end of the day. The richly saturated colors and the brightly lit house waiting at the top of these old cracked steps all make for a great shot.
