Mr. Barr and professional photographers Christoph Gervais of Roslindale and Rob Macintosh of West Roxbury chose the images on display from among the 40 submitted.

Stop by Brookline Bank during regular banking hours to see these beautiful and surprising photos taken by your friends and neighbors: David Forsyth, Wilfred Holton, Preston Keller, Joseph Madsen, Miriam Madsen, Joy Martin, Eileen McEnaney, Jessica Mink, Keith Morgan, J. P. Tuttle, and Lorie White.
