Got some good news today. Just learned that my photo (above) of Duluth Denfeld wide receiver-defensive back KJ Pulliam kissing his mother on the cheek during parents' night introductions this fall has won an international Photo of the Month award from Editor & Publisher, the premiere magazine for the print, television and radio industry. The photo competed against those published by many of the world's best photographers from the Associated Press, and from daily and weekly newspapers, magazines and online-only publications. Second time I've won the award, both in the last year. The photo means a lot to me personally, because KJ and his mom are two of the nicest people on this planet.

While I'm at it, here's a few other personal favorite photos from this fall:
