As always, the Queens Chronicle was thrilled by the many great entries we received for our latest photo contest — in this case the fourth annual Summer in the Borough. And, as always, it was tough to pick the winners, and we don’t have enough room to print all the worthy pictures we received. More than you see here are posted on our website. Check ’em out. Our gratitude goes out to everyone who entered, and we invite all our readers to submit more for our next contest, the winter holiday one. Expect an announcement of that one sometime in November. You could be our next winner!
This is the first time we divided the contest into amateur and professional categories, allowing for two winners. Both will be seeing “Disney on Ice” with a few guests later this year, courtesy of the Chronicle
THE WINNER in our new professional category is Christina Psomiades, who has a very creative mind — and several attractive young friends to pose for her in various Queens locations. One is Caitlin-Grace Fleming, who Christina said “has chosen to stay a child of summer,” adding, “Wherever the sun shines is where she will travel to.” Here she takes a break in Forest Park.
THE WINNER in the amateur category is Don Brunjes, who caught his nephew Danny Lustig having fun in the sprinkler at the lensman’s parents’ house on 184th Street in Fresh Meadows on July 4. You’d be hard-pressed to say “summer fun” more clearly than this!
“Peachy Keen” is what former contest winner Steve Fisher of Middle Village dubbed his closeup of a little furry friend on a fence.
Wow, what a sunset! Marvin Schwartz of Howard Beach took this lovely atmospheric photo on the boardwalk in Rockaway.
Ashley, Patrick and Eva, on the scooter, run their lemonade stand in Howard Beach, in a shot submitted by the DeMarie twins, Laura and Janet.
Wow, what a sunrise! Jay Diaz, aka KoolPix, captured this gem from a window at the CUNY School of Law in Long Island City.
