I agree wholeheartedly with the Feb. 11 letter praising photographer Jay Karr. He is an outstanding photographer, always catching on camera the unique and unusual, while making everyday scenes stand out with the angle the shot is taken from and his composition of the subject.
There are too many to list all, but some of my recent favorites were the Jan. 29 front-page photo of the hooded merganser with his piercing yellow eyes; the "airborne" shot of Simeon Middleton, his hair caught flying with split-second timing in the Feb. 13 sports section; the Feb. 14 shot of "quiet time of man and heron" fishing on a dismal day, drawing your eye to the perpendicular line of the dock pilings against the choppy waves in the water; and the "Outtake" in the Jan. 1 <2009>edition, "Striking a Pose," catching the synchronized stretch of legs in a yoga class.
Needless to say, I always enjoy his photos.
Never miss a local story.
