AND THE WINNER IS … — Matthew Gray is June’s Photo of the Month contest winner. He took this image at the home of Carmen and Claud Billingsley on Hubert Harris Road near Union City using an Apple iPhone 11 Pro. Mattie Jane Gray, 5, (from left) was joined Ally Anne Gray, 3, Carsen Gray, 8, and Harrison Gray, 11, after a day of swimming and an early dinner. These four ambled down the driveway to go play under the irrigation pivot. “Oh … the solitude of a southern summer night,” said Claudia Maness, who submitted the photo to The Messenger for the contest. Entries for the contest are accepted each month and must have been taken within the last year. Photos should be emailed in high resolution to email@example.com with “Photo Contest” as the subject line. The photographer’s name, address and daytime phone number should be included, as well as where the photograph was made, what kind of camera it was taken with and a brief explanation of the photograph. Images with people in them must have identifications and permission for submission from the person or people in the photograph. The deadline for each contest month will be the last day of the month.
