Shutterbug and Panasonic are happy to announce the winner of our "Inspirations"
Photo Contest, conducted on the web site Galleries at www.shutterbug.com. Jim
Semonik, who resides in central New Jersey, submitted his image and won the
votes of judges and web commentators alike. Jim's shot was taken in Ft.
Lauderdale, Florida. Said Jim, "I saw the boat and took about 60 pictures
of it over two mornings -- the first day was overcast the second was perfect.
I still have 59 other shots from every possible angle."



As
to his growing love of photography, Jim said, "I had an interest in photography
back in the `70s but marriage, daughters (who had a nasty habit of wanting
to eat!) put hobbies on hold. Digital rekindled my creative spirit and I have
been trying to improve. I started with an HP 2MP camera went to a Fuji 3MP,
then 6 MP and finally took the plunge on a Nikon D50. The kids are grown now
and I love to travel. I get to see some interesting places because of my job
but I fell in love with the Southwest and the Islands. It's probably that
mid-life Jimmy Buffett deal!"
