Heart of Mystic Photo Contest Winner Captures Diver Photo and Free Overnight Stay
MYSTIC, Conn. - What one photograph best defines "The Heart of Mystic?" Is it a building, an event, a person, an attraction, the coastline or countryside? Hilton Mystic asked just that during its annual Heart of Mystic photo contest.
The hotel asked Hilton Mystic guests to submit a photograph that best reflects "the Heart of Mystic." Lauren Magliaro of Rockaway, New Jersey, was recently notified that she won the photo contest with the image of an exchange between her son and a diver at Mystic Aquarium. She received a free overnight stay at Hilton Mystic.
"The photo was taken during our trip in July," said Magliaro. "It was our first time going back to Hilton Mystic since the renovation. We loved it before but now it's even better. We love the quaint yet modern style of the hotel and being able to walk to the shops and the aquarium are a huge bonus. Our son loves all things sea creatures so we plan a lot of our family trips around aquariums."
A longtime photography buff, Magliaro said she's always been interested in photography so when she saw there was a photo contest she thought it would be fun to give it a try.
"I was in the right place at the right time with my camera ready when I caught the little exchange between my son and the diver," she said. "I think the photo captures the fact that the Heart of Mystic is entirely it's people. The scuba diver made my 10-year old's day by interacting with him through the glass, as you can see from the look on his face."
Magliaro said she's excited to have won a free night at the hotel and is looking forward to trying out a stingray encounter program at the aquarium with her family.
