Finding the Frame - Jed Conklin

There are many pictures we take as photojournalists that just don’t make the paper. News photojournalism will force a pretty or artsy photo off the newsprint almost every time. Case in point is this picture from Spokesman-Review photojournalist Jed Conklin that he took over Thanksgiving weekend at Hill’s Resort on Priest Lake, Idaho. It is a cool image that begs to be looked at. Unfortunately it really can’t compete with the daily news photos we have scheduled in the limited space of the newspaper. After seeing this photo sitting on Jed’s computer screen, I knew it had to be saved from ending up lost on his hard drive for eternity. I like Jed’s description of what he was seeing when he found the frame. I hope you will too.
