In Time Photography, Bel Air, has been awarded first place in a statewide competition of the Maryland Professional Photographers' Association.
A panel of three judges reviewed photographs in the categories of commercial, creative, portrait and wedding photography.

Countians at camp
Harford County residents David Daughton, Ryan Harkins and Grant Holly were among 40 Maryland teen-agers who attended the 1992 State 4-H Natural Resources Camp last week at the Fairview Outdoor Education Center near Clear Spring, Washington County.
The goal of the camp, said Sharon Diehl, Allegany County Extension director and a "soil" instructor at the camp, was to increase participants' awareness of environmental issues and teach them activities they could share with other young people.
In the soil "track," campers discussed the problem of soil erosion and importance of soil testing. They also dug small plots of earth and collected earthworms, beetles and other creatures they found for counting and identification. Many teens were surprised to discover how much life exists beneath their feet.
In addition to soil, each camper participated in educational tracks focusing on water, forestry and wildlife.
