Cold can't keep camera shutters from snapping

An early season snowstorm couldn’t deter local shutterbugs from joining the Cheyenne gathering of the sixth annual Worldwide Photo Walk.

For the first time, a Laramie County Community College student earned top honors for her shots taken during the Oct. 5 event.

Cheyenne resident Joyce Hudson was named the winner of the local walk. Her image will go on to international competition. Locals Lon Pfau, second place; Fred Rife, third place, and Allison Calton, honorable mention, were also recognized in the regional competition.

The regional walk also included a scavenger hunt for the first time this year, with photographers encouraged to explore images that included high angles, low angles, silhouettes, sun flare and long exposures. Hudson completed a first-place sweep by also taking top honors with her images in that category as well. Second place again went to Pfau.

The Cheyenne gathering of the Worldwide Photo Walk attracted 25 photographers. It was one of 1,238 photo walks worldwide on Oct. 5 that included 28,358 photographers. The walk was held at Lions Park starting from the Paul Smith’s Children’s Village of the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens. The event was sponsored by LCCC’s mass media/multimedia department.
