Colleagues,

 

The Associated Press Media Editors has honored this photograph as National Member Photo of the Month for  November  2017. 

 

Thanks to Michael Delaney  at  The  Providence Journal  for judging this month. 

 

Here is what the judge had to say about the winning image:

 

As these types of pictures go, this is one of the best I have seen. This type of situation is happening too often in this country. It is also a terrible situation for all involved – including the photographer. To capture the moment this way is a skill that includes journalistic storytelling, tact, and empathy for the victims.

 

 Below is the link to all images entered for  November and the winner is slide No. 30.
