The Los Angeles Times and Samy’s Camera co-sponsored the Capture LA Photo Contest to help celebrate Samy’s Camera’s 40 years of business in Los Angeles.  Photographers were encouraged to submit a photo which they felt captured the feel of LA.  Entries were accepted in three categories which included Nature & Environment, Architecture and Daily Life.

Winners of the Capture LA Photo Contest were announced and displayed at May’s PhotoCon LA 2016. We’ve put together a collection of the winning photos. Clicking on the photos will display an enlarged version.
