California Streaming Digital Photography Contest

Ronda Cordova of Downey High School couldn’t be more proud of her students!  Thirteen of her Advanced Photo students entered the California Streaming Digital Photography Contest.  Ana Preciado was named a contest winner for her entry titled “The Window”, and  eight of her other students received honorable mention.

Contest Winner – Ana Preciado 

A man looks at his grandson playing outside; a man who is from a completely different world than that of the child on the other side of the window. From a different time, from a different country, from a different life. The decisions he has made, the battles he has fought, the life he has lived has effected the people of the future: his lineage.

This man worked for what he wanted – to give his children, his grandchildren, his lineage a life he could only dream of. And in that moment of realization, that you are a part of something so much bigger than yourself, begs for small smile. To know that your work, your life, is worth something. That because of you, the child on the other side of the window has a life that once seemed so far away. In that small smile, he is free.
