Colin Mulvany: Favorite Photos 2015

A wedding in Manito Park. A house fire on the South Hill. A rainbow over Spokane Falls. My work as a staff photojournalist for The Spokesman-Review is a kaleidoscope of fleeting moments filled with emotion, beauty and sometimes despair. Each day, I try and capture with my camera a visual reflection of what has happened in our community. Here are some of my favorite snaps from 2015.

Dan Pelle: Favorite Photos 2015

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the following has a collective value of 54 thousand. But the real value of capturing fleeting moments is priceless. The most interesting subject for me to photograph is people. What are they doing? What are they feeling? What are they saying? The right captured moment, no matter how loud or quiet, reveals the person. Oh, and by the way, I threw in a few scenics just for fun.
