Topic: 2012 Christchurch City Libraries Photo Hunt - People

Topic type:

The People category – Families, cultural and social events, reflected the overall theme of the 2012 photo hunt.

The winning entry in this category was Sunday afternoon, Sumner promenade, submitted by Merle Conaghan.   The judges' commented:

Christchurch in summer, summed up in a photo. It is simply a 1960s shot of three generations enjoying a weekend walk by the beach - but it’s so evocative you can almost smell the suntan lotion and salty sea air.

There are so many things in this photo that are evocative of the time and place – the prints on the dresses, the shape of the sunglasses, even the glimpse of sunhat you see over the top of the concrete wall. And off in the distance, Scarborough’s clock tower. If the people in this photo hadn’t just had an ice cream I’m sure one was in their immediate future.

Picnic, submitted by Paul Slater, At the races, submitted by Ruth Cashin and Open day, 1955, submitted byRaymond Morris were all Highly Commended.
