LAHM to sponsor photo contest

-A A +A
By Special to the Monitor

The golden trees on the Jemez and Sangre de Cristo mountains have inspired the Los Alamos Historical Society to sponsor a fall and summer photo contest. Winners will have their photographs made into greeting cards and added to the Los Alamos Historical Museum archival collection.
The Historical Society introduced an exclusive line of greeting cards two years ago using photos from the museum collection. It includes scenes from Pajarito Mountain, an historic picture of Fuller Lodge in the snow and a reproduction of a 1928 Christmas card from the Los Alamos Ranch School. A winter photo contest held in 2008 added snowy scenes from Ashley Pond and other local spots.
“Our last contest demonstrated that Los Alamos is full of wonderful photographers,” said Heather McClenahan, assistant museum director. “We want to capture scenes of Los Alamos today for the collection so that future researchers and others interested in the history of Los Alamos will be able to see the beauty of our community as it now.”
Photographs should be of summer or fall scenes that are unique to, and recognizable as, Los Alamos. They may be recent or historic.
