Photo of neighbor’s hosta takes first in National Camera contest

Mietek’s Hosta by Paul Winter

St. Anthony Park photographer Paul Winger won first place in National Camera’s Nature in Black + White contest this spring with a photo of a hosta in a neighbor’s garden. The photo, shown here, is also on display at the National Camera branch in Roseville. Winger says he frequently visits the gardens of Mietek Glowka in St. Anthony Park to create his botanical photographs. He spotted the hosta in the photograph on one of those visits. “Its shape and design literally stopped in my tracks,” Winger said. Learn more about Winger at
