The APME has honored this photograph as National Member Photo of the Month for January 2014.
Thanks to Jeff Knox, Chris Hankins, Rick West and Laura Stoecker at the Daily Herald for judging this month.
Here is what the judges had to say about the winning image:
"We loved the lens choice, tight framing, and the great moment was the subject. It wasn't the most glamorous assignment, but a fantastic picture that was simple, and meaningful given that the girl is white."
Below is the link to all images entered for January and the winner is slide #31.
