1st AP TOPIX pick-up

At 9 o'clock p.m. last night I went to photograph Black Friday specials at Toys"R"Us in Royal Palm Beach. Made this picture. My boss called the next morning to tell me that the AP has picked it up for their TOPIX features. NICE!!

I kept thinking of Al Bello - eliminate color... black... white... red.

First time in Court (to photograph)

This was my first time shooting pictures during a court case. The trial had been going on a very long time before I ever got to the Palm Beach Post in October. Nearly eight years ago, The woman's four-year-old son was beat to death by her lover. The defendant in the case was recently found guilty and I was asked to photograph the sentencing. This was after the man received two life sentences with an additional 30 years - the maximum.

National Adoption Day

This is the new Colón family. Three siblings all in need of a family and hoping to stay together. After an afternoon of pizza, face painting, they finalized their adoption at the Palm Beach County Courthouse on National Adoption Day.
