Outtakes. A breath of fresh air…

Recently, we ran a story about the new YMCA opening in King George. As photojournalists our favorite photos occasionally don’t run. Sometimes they just don’t have the moments and content to be the best storytelling image for the newspaper. Fortunately, blogs and the web have given us a new outlet for our pictures that wouldn’t see the light of day.
