Photo Contest

The theme is “Photobombs” – referring to the action of spoiling a photograph (of a person or thing) by unexpectedly appearing in the camera’s field of view as the picture is taken (typically as a prank) or a photo that has been spoiled by the unexpected appearance of the unintended subject as the picture is taken.
Look through your photos and find a few favorites that you would love to share.  All photos submitted will be on display in The Kitchens.  For additional entry details please view the 2015 Photo Contest Flyer (pdf). The deadline to submit photos to is Friday, May 15, 2015.
