"It is a great way to offer people who visit the web site a virtual tour of the village through the eyes of so many photographers. Each season throughout the year enhances the way the village looks and what it has to offer in the way of entertainment, shopping, and dining, as well as many photo opportunities to set the stage for a contest of this nature.

"For me, photography is a special way of seeing things that are always there, right under my nose, yet taken for granted, like the air I breathe. Photography is a mental discipline that forces me to see thinks more readily, in greater detail and greater clarity. It is at once, exciting and entertaining. The instant I frame a shot, I discover something that hadn't existed in my mind the moment before. It might not even be the exact picture that I framed; it might be a picture within the intended picture, which I first see in post-production. It all adds up to a sense of discovery. It's like being an explorer in your own backyard. And the more I do it, the more appreciation I have for all that Glen Ellyn and the world have to offer. Some time in the future, you might consider a theme as simple as Discover Glen Ellyn, with a short tag line that speaks to the awe and adventure that come with peeking into our town's nooks and crannies, discovering and taking unexpected pictures. And even if you don't win the contest every time, the process of discovering Glen Ellyn's diversity and beauty will always be its own reward."
