Theme: Playing Outdoors
“This is a picture of baby Axel’s very first Fourth of July, enjoying the pool.”
– Renee Ramirez, LAFD
John’s comment: Playing by the pool is certainly playing outside! Classic portraiture – a dying art, but this captures it – the color blocks that frame the face, the off-center focus which creates energy, and that face. Awesome!
“Taken on the Fourth of July weekend at the Santa Monica Pier. This is titled ‘Gooooooal!’”
– Alex Andrews, Building and Safety
“My wife and her sisters enjoying the nose-bleed sights on top of the Red Rocks of Sedona (Arizona). After off-roading and mountain climbing in steady 70-degree weather, they made sure to celebrate with champagne and crackers while watching the sunset.”
– Dominique Daito, LAPD
John’s comment: Another great photo, Dominique. There aren’t any games here and no organized fun, just a spontaneous celebration of being outside in a magnificent setting. Awesome!
