Grace Slentz could be forgiven if her eyes wander during tutoring sessions. The Walker Elementary School third-grader faces a gallery of delightful images, each with a story to tell.
The Crestview Photo Club's latest major exhibition graces the Crestview Public Library's north display wall during March and April, taking patrons on a grand tour throughout the region, across the United States and around the world.
A mysterious cemetery, splashing waterfalls, a peaceful cypress swamp, a stately castle, a graceful old bridge, an inquisitive snake and even a junk yard of rusting classic cars: Such is the world, as seen through local shutterbugs' viewfinders.
With each photo matted in a black frame, only enjoyment of the local artists' current show rival the subject matter's breadth and diversity.
Choosing a favorite among them might be hard for some, but not for Grace, who immediately chose Peter Hoffman's "Navarre Bay" as hers.
"I like the background," she said of the pastoral view of the Navarre Bridge and Santa Rosa Island. "The background is colorful and the water is shiny."
