Third-year business and architecture student Olivia Cheng was taking a break from her job last July and enjoying time with her friends at the Calgary Stampede. “We got there mid-afternoon and were enjoying the crazy foods as well as the people-watching that comes with Stampede.” Eventually they headed over to the midway rides, the favourite spot for kids of all ages. “I saw the people on the swing ride moving up and I saw their silhouettes against the sunset and I thought it was really beautiful. I immediately picked up the camera and took the picture.” Cheng’s photo won Best Overall Honourable Mention in the University of Calgary’s 2012 Centre for International Students and Study Abroad’s (CISSA) International Photo Contest, an annual celebration of students’ photographic talents.
