Photos

100% podium-free

Yesterday’s assignment, the unveiling of a painting in the library, seemed like it was going to be another occasion that wouldn’t yield any good pictures. Sure enough, all the shots of speakers next to the easel were downright sleep-inducing.

Fortunately, I caught a nice moment where a key figure in the proceedings turned around to speak with the Spartan Daily reporter. For a second, I was finally just seeing instead of thinking. This happens more and more often these days as the paper forces me to speed up my process. For my money, this is one of my best shots so far.

But I want to know what you, the readers, think. You can comment on this photo or any other (within the last six months) by clicking on it. Do it.

Martha Heasley Cox

Martha Heasley Cox, founder of the Martha Heasley Cox Center for Steinbeck Studies, attends the unveiling of a restored 1946 portrait of John Steinbeck Monday. The painting by Swedish artist Bo Beskow will hang in the Steinbeck Room of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Joint Library.
