Pictures with the Press 2017
And the winners are...
Greg Guerrazzi of Glen Ellen found a nice place for a nap in the Grand Canyon. We love the composition and the colors of this picture, and of course, he put the KP to good use, too!
This photo really captures the spirit of the contest. The KP just has to be somewhere in the picture, and we appreciate the “Where’s Waldo?” quality of this one. Jim Sandler snapped it after walking into his teenage daughter’s room and being temporarily awestruck by the mess
(his words, not ours!)
Jerry, Chris and Max Cook anticipate totality on Aug. 21 in Prineville, Oregon.
Or at least Jerry and Max do!
Carolyn Verheyen’s cat, Chortle, won third prize in this very photo contest back in 2014. He was quite pleased to see his picture appear again in the KP, in an ad for this year’s photo contest. And according to Carolyn, when he saw himself he gave a little chortle!
John Tan and his fiancée Janet took a trip to the Galapagos Islands in June, and made sure they packed their trusty KP for the hike up this slippery ground lava hill.
Rich Gibson of El Verano had to hold onto his favorite newspaper in the dusty, windswept Colorado Desert, part of the Sonoran Desert.
Last summer Paisha and Janet Jorgensen took a bike tour through the Netherlands with their daughter Arielle Breeze. Here Paisha and Arielle take a little break to catch up on the news from home.
Cleaning up miner-style! Linda Hale sent this photo while on a long road trip through Canada.
Robin and Scott Lane’s family dog, Finley, enjoys reading the KP while drinking out of his favorite Warriors water bottle. Finley is a huge Warriors fan!
Chuck and Sallie Wood had fun with this “fun house” mirror in the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. The park dates from the 1800s and was an inspiration for Walt Disney.
While driving through Montana on the way to visit friends, Julie Atwood made her husband Tom pull over and take this picture in Clearwater Junction. That’s a whole lotta bull, Julie!
Betsy and Peter Spann, owners of Spann Vineyards, did some “research” in front of the Hermitage vineyard along the Rhône River in southern France.
Back in January, Susan and Agustin Reiter (back) visited Emma Morano in Pallanza, Italy, and shared the KP with her. At the time, Emma was the oldest living person on earth. She died on April 15, 2017.
Griffin Hill (left), with parents Bruce Goldstein and Vicki Hill, at the top of Dawson Pass in Two Medicine Valley, on the east side of Glacier National Park, Montana. The photo was taken on the one of the few clear days of their trip, as much of the state was on fire (including several fires inside Glacier National Park.)
Rich Randolph caught up on the local news while fishing in East Lake, Oregon.
Thanks to everyone who participated in Pictures with the Press! If your photo didn't make this special insert, look for it in our Oct. 1 issue.
