Wow, time flies. 2014 marks my second full year at The Spokesman-Review. From covering the largest wildfire in Washington state’s history, to a roller coaster of a football season on the sidelines in Pullman and Cheney, 2014 didn’t disappoint.

Just like last last year, thanks first to The Spokesman-Review, for still placing high value on quality photojournalism and for letting me be a part of it. Thanks to the readers for taking the time to look, read, and think for themselves. Above all else though, thanks to the people I have photographed for letting me into their lives and trusting me to document them one frame at a time.

I’m looking forward to 2015.

Entering my 26th year at The Spokesman-Review, I am constantly blessed by people from our community who have let me capture and share the photographic moments of their lives. My year in pictures is as varied as my subjects. This year, I tried to stretch my vision and creativity beyond the normal day-to-day assignments by taking one photo just for me. Doing so, reminds me each day that there are photographs all around me. I just have to see them. Thanks for taking a look. Colin Mulvany

I spent a lot of time in jail in 2014, documenting a pregnant inmate and the outcome of a childhood spent in our fractured foster care system. I get to see something different everyday and something amazing every once in a while. I hope you like a few frames. Thanks, Kathy Plonka

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Ceremony

When Pearl Harbor was attacked, approximately 80,000 Americans were on duty there and at other military bases in Hawaii that also were bombed. Later, survivors of the infamous day formed a national Pearl Harbor Survivors Association, and a Lilac City Chapter in Spokane one had 125 members. Only five local survivors remain, all in the 90s, and they hist a “Salute to the Fallen” every year. On Sunday, Dec. 7, 2014, they commemorate the 73rd anniversary to remind everyone “eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”
