A STUNNING trio of photos have won top honours at the annual Bell Tower photographic competition.
In its eighth year, this year’s theme was “Sense of Place”.
People’s choice winner Christian Mueller has been taking snaps for about seven years, but this was his first competition entry.
His photo, A Space for New and Old, is a symmetrical black-and-white depiction of the bell tower with a building under- construction in the background
Tracey Killen won the judges’ award for her image Puddles, taken as she shivered in the rain to get the perfect shot of the gleaming Bell Tower and its slick backdrop.
Beeliar photographer Taylor Yates, 15, won the youth category.
He’s been taking photos since he was a young kid, borrowing his dad’s camera to experiment.
He got his own first camera two years ago, and usually takes candid shots of people.
His image Within Perspective, taken at the foot of the tower, was the first photo he’d entered into a competition.
The grown-ups won a $1200 camera package and the youth category gong comes with a $739 Powershot G9X Mark II camera.
