Jurorís Statement: In my capacity as editor of Black & White magazine, I am constantly judging images, not only for publication in our regular issues, but also for our Portfolio and Single Image Contest issues.

Happily, this was not the case when I sat down to consider the photographs submitted for this exhibition. I was, in fact, greatly impressed with the originality and quality on display. From the beginning of my involvement with photography, both as practitioner and editor, I have been drawn to the work of those who go against the status quo, who avidly experiment with the medium, who pioneer their own creative themes and visual parameters.

Driving home from work I noticed this hot air balloon some distance from where it is in the frame. I was able to park car and rush back to the bridge where I set up my tripod and began shooting. This hot air balloon flying silently over the Susquehanna River caused more than a few heads to turn as it was visible to most folks here in Tunkhannock Pennsylvania U.S.A. Tunkhannock is a river community (West Branch of the Susquehanna River) in the Wyoming Valley of Northeast Pennsylvania. The name Tunkhannock is an Indian (Lenape) name meaning either "extensive meadows or narrow stream" depending on your source.
