Best Pictures 2010 - Part 1
Moments Frozen in Time
W RIVER OF SCREAMS
Startled by Denise Short in costume, Bryce Prather, 8, lets out a yelp as he enters the witches den with Erica Webb during a visit to "The River of Screams" at Splash in the 'Boro in October. Difficult lighting. Unpredictable subjects. I can't begin to describe all of the out-of-focus duds I shot at this event. All it takes is one, though. - photo by SCOTT BRYANT/staff

       Photography has the unique ability to freeze otherwise fleeting moments in time.

      This attribute allows us to examine a fraction of a second, see things in new ways, examine the messages within and hold it in our memories.

      This is a collection of just a few pictures over the course of the year I believe display that incredible gift.
