Remote Meeting (See Instructions/Get Zoom Link Emailed)
We often see our world through windows, doorways, peep-holes, gaps in trees, or other portals. Sometimes we're looking out into the world and other times we're looking inside a man-made or natural structure. The structures we look through provide natural framing for our images. Submit photos that give the viewer a sense of either looking in or looking out.
You may submit a total of three images, but only two in the same category. Categories are either Looking In / Looking Out or Open.
