Each year, Boone Hospital Center employees look forward to the annual employee photo contest to show off impressive shots of their family, nature, vacation and more.
This year’s categories included Family, Nature, Blue and Architecture. The bonus category, voted on by employees, was Famous Images Re-Enacted. There were many outstanding photographs by Boone Hospital staff from all different skill levels.
This year’s Best in Show prize went to Ed Stobie, Medical Technologist from the Laboratory. His prize winning photo of this granddaughter playing in the surf at St. Pete’s beach outside of Tampa got a big “aww” from the crowd during the awards ceremony on Oct. 18, 2012.
This summer, Stobie and his wife Kathy, along with their daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter Ella visited Florida. One night during a walk on the beach he turned around to see Ella, then two years old, playing in the sand. He captured the moment with his camera.
“You have to be quick,” he laughed about his photo. “They move around a lot and don’t pose for pictures at that age.”
Stobie and his wife, who works in the recovery room at Boone Hospital, love to travel to National Parks. They take a lot of photos for fun.
