"Allure." "Awkward." "Pattern." Those were the prompts for the Reader's fall photo contest, and they're admittedly challenging. Many things are attractive, or graceless, or feature the repetition of motifs, after all. But how do you capture those qualities in a photograph?
Harry W. Walker got uncomfortably close to a cow, in part creating the awkwardness. Rebecca Fite discovered the organic pattern in rolled-up paper and presented it elegantly. David Dwyer offered an alluring snapshot depicting instinctual attraction.
Each of the dozen photographs we're featuring in these pages has much to offer by itself. We've also grouped them together, and paired them with words, with the goal of adding even more rhymes, meanings, and associations.
Enjoy, and look for our next photo contest in the spring.
