Ready, Aim, Shoot!

No we’re not going deer hunting, we are going picture hunting.  Yes, a picture is worth a thousand words and tomorrow all of us get a chance to become professionals with our cameras, phones or whatever you use to take your pictures. Some of us even know what film is (funny there is a whole generation that doesn’t). “The Picture Your Parks Photo Contest” is a fun way for the community to engage and experience our local Park System.  However, the big deal is that the picture must be taken between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and
10:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 1, 2010.  Yes, tomorrow. So start planning now! Photos must be recognizably in Gresham and taken within the Gresham Park system (you would be surprised how many locations there are that qualify – go to the City of Gresham’s Web Site for the location of all parks, trails and natural areas!).  This is about nature and our parks. So photos that have been digitally altered beyond basic
cropping, exposure and color adjustments will be disqualified. So there is no taking 20 lbs. off the park. 
Again, go to the City of Gresham website for details. You have from dawn to dusk tomorrow to take
pictures of whatever you see that tells the park story you most want to tell – from wildlife and playgrounds to
graffiti and litter. It is y our story to tell – so channel your inner Ansel Adams and shoot!  See you out there – maybe I’ll get a picture of you taking a picture of me!
