Yesterday my photo editor, Judy Lutz, blew my mind. Every once in a while she does this. She is a little unpredictable, and at times, I totally love it. My assignment was to photograph preparation for this weekend's Everglades Seafood Festival. So, I photographed carnies setting up rides. (Ah, how I love the carnies.) I had plenty of pictures that had decent light and decent composition that would have worked fine. And she chose this one. I looked at her with a look on my face that said, "are you sure?" Because, normally, we run a pretty safe ship. Safe is not to say boring or bad photography is used, just safe. But yesterday, Judy said was feeling bold. And she said we shouldn't "spoon feed" everyone all the time. I was sooooo happy. Because really, I shot this picture for me. And today, it is in the paper, for everyone.
