The APME has honored the above photograph as National Member Photo of the Month for October 2012.
Thanks to Ben Gray at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for judging this month.
What Ben had to say about the winning image:
"I love the frozen moment, the expression on the girl's face and the vertical pony-tails. There were some photos that were more newsy and some that were prettier, but I kept coming back to this one which I found the most visually interesting."
