A Family of Quality Publications Celebrating the Place We Call Home
These People, Places & Things photo contest submissions were too good to spend eternity in our inbox. Here are some honorable mentions and staff favorites from our sixth annual contest. Winners can be seen here.
"Erie Night" by Larry Janssen, Little Chute. St. John Church from the Community Bridge.
”I’m Still on the Outside!” by Larry Janssen, Little Chute. A Little Chute Historical Society cemetery walk had this 1939 hearse on display.
”Lake Fly Fairies” by Joanne Bozeman at North Shore Country Club. ”My husband and I attended a dinner dance at North Shore Country Club, which coincided with the annual lake fly infestation. 2010 had a particularly bountiful hatch. I happened to glance out the windows of the ballroom toward the lowering sun and saw the swarm over the lawn transformed into a magical scene via backlighting through the lake flies' wings. There is a little glare on the left side on the image because I was shooting through the window, a flaw that I am willing to accept because I refused to go outside in the midst of millions of bugs to get the shot!”
”Lawe Street Locks at Winter” by Dolores Howse, Appleton
“The Maribel Hotel” by Amy Schauland, Greenleaf.
”Night Shift” by Chris Hazel. Taken at CopperLeaf Hotel in Appleton.
”Livin a Dream” by Larry Janssen, Little Chute. "My uncle Jim Spierings beat cancer and wanted to give back to others for what he received during his cancer battle and started Rock Cancer. His dream was to play in a Rock-n-Roll band and here he get his shot! The event is held each August in Little Chute and has helped others with over $80,000."

Manitowoc Marina just before sunrise by Jeremy Friebel, Menasha.
Photo by Alex Henninger in Downtown Appleton. “Attached is a photo of a train bridge located along a jogging trail on the outskirts of Downtown Appleton. This is one photo, taken with the use of a tripod and a 10 second exposure in the middle of the night. That's me balancing on the track.”
