  • Photographer's choice: Sometimes life rolls out in front of a photojournalist perfectly. Like the Sunday my dog went to a local mall to tell Santa what he wanted for Christmas. This brother and sister were ahead of us. They have different owners but double teamed Santa this year for old times sake. Only appearing online because of a tight paper the next day, I hope it puts a smile on your face as big as mine.

    Photographer's choice - Part of our daily duties at the Free Press includes the search for stand alone feature images. Some people call them "daily life photos" and they are the newspaper photographer's bread and butter. This particular image was taken in February of this year and as things usually go I drove right by it while on my way to something else. I remember seeing the owner of the store bringing the sleds out and it stuck with me for a few blocks. It was one of those things I knew would bug me for days, so I told the reporter I was with we had to go back to that store. It took about a half hour of hanging out before this guy walked up and started going through the sleds. February 12, 2011 Photo Store
