Hobbyist photographer and St. Louis Park resident Jeff Liss took home the top prize in the Activities and Events  category of the Picture City South photo contest for his photo titled Practicing for Duck Season—his snapshot of a dog leaping gleefully into the gray-blue water at Lake Harriet.

This photo titled Curiosity features a young woman peeking through a door. The subject of the photo is photographer Jo Davis’ 7-year-old daughter, Riley.

A relatively new and rapidly growing workplace concept is coworking, a membership-based workspace or office comprised of individuals or companies operating independently—often in completely different industries.

This whimsical photo of a curious cat and a toad won second place in the Pets category of the Picture City South photo contest. The cat’s name is Winslow. His owner, Susan Spannaus, took the picture on her patio in 2015.
