Help Garland Eyes tell the stories of Garland one image at a time. “Stories” may come from any of the eyes on Garland.

All images at Garland Eyes are either (1) of Garland, or (2) of a Garlandite, or (3) by a Garlandite. As examples, in the first category, the photo might be the old Power Plant; the second, the Mayor in Washington, DC; and the third, a scene captured by a Garland resident visiting Seaside, Florida. A “Garlandite” is someone that lives in Garland, works in Garland, or is from Garland.

To submit a photo for consideration, send it by clicking here. All images posted will be marked as copyrighted by the photographer. Submittals must include the following information:

  • Name
  • Address
  • E-mail
  • Designation that the photo is 1) of Garland, or 2) of a Garlandite, or 3) by a Garlandite
  • A short description to accompany the photo that provides pertinent details (should be short, 5-10 words)
  • Which category you think your photo best fits (see the Galleries tab or suggest a new category)

Garland Eyes may crop or edit submittals, so they don’t have to be perfect. Of course, it’s fine if they are. Also, if the photographer prefers no editing, that should be noted in the submittal.

All submittals must be family appropriate.

The general Garland Eyes philosophy: “Stories” should be simple—the adage, a picture is worth a thousand words, is appropriate. Let the image do the talking. We generally prefer photos that are on the artistic side, that moved the photographer one or two steps beyond his comfort zone, that bring a new perspective to the common view. We won’t usually identify individuals in the photos, unless it is necessary to the story. Regardless, we never identify minors without parent permission.
