The Hibiscus Coast Photographic Club’s lockdown competition showed many creative interpretations of the lockdown theme. Among the winners was this image by Agatha Lambert, who used the panic buying of toilet paper as inspiration, calling it Toilet Roll Hysteria. Fourth equal overall were Vivienne Rowell’s ‘Morning Mood’ and Daniel Oosthuyssen’s ‘Late Night Scrabble’. Above, Peter Boot won first place overall for this image, called ‘Light Reading’. Third equal overall were Agatha Lambert’s interpretation of the Toilet Roll Hysteria and ‘Smashing It’ by Val Davies, right. Both were in the Stir Crazy section. ‘And you think you’ve had it bad’, by Paul Conroy came second overall.
Members of the Hibiscus Coast Photographic Club put their lenses to good use during lockdown.
The club ran a Lockdown Competition with three themes – ‘In My Space’, ‘Something Arty’ and ‘Stir Crazy’. All the images had to be taken and created from within the member’s ‘bubble’.
Members voted for the best shots in each category, and the best overall.
Many of the winners went on display on large LED advertising screens around Auckland.
Here are some of the standout photographs, as chosen by members.
