The Week of Portraits

Citizen of the Year
Norma Trunage, the Rocky Mount Chamber of Commerce Distinguished Citizen of the Year..
One of the things I love most about my job as a newspaper photographer is the incredible diversity of assignments I shoot, from sports to breaking news and everything in between.

Sometimes, things can get a little monotonous, though.

Like last week, when I think I must have had eight portrait assignments in as many days (I sort of lost count). I like shooting portraits, but after that week I was ready for something else!

I thought I would share this one that I liked a little better than the others.
