Albany--Sometimes a photograph is much more than a snapshot. It can be art. Some young Albany picture-takers proved that today.

Yaz Johnson of Yaz Photography Studio presented awards to fifth graders who took part in the "Through the Eyes of a Camera" project. Walmart donated disposible cameras, and Johnson encouraged the students to take creative photographs earlier this month. "These kids did an excellent job over their spring break taking pictures of things that they liked things that they enjoyed, and they brought them all back, and we're just having a good time here with the kids," Johnson said.

Three Lincoln Magnet students took top honors. Sonya Patel's picture of an umbrella won third place. Judges chose Brandi Carrithers' photo of a perched dog as second. Ashlee Tucker won the competition for her picture of a stained glass window. She got a 250-dollar gift certificate and other prizes.
