Coming back to some great reader photos!

I’m in my first day back at the office and I was greeted by some pretty good reader photos on our website.

It’s a nice refresher for a Monday morning, which also happens to be the Monday after a vacation- womp, womp.

Here’s some of the standouts:

Reader Photos of the week: Natural beauty

This week it’s been cool and less humid in the Valley, and it appears our readers have been out and about taking in the late-summer scenery.

The proof is in the reader gallery online which showcases numerous floral and plant scenes from around the area.

Here’s a peek:

This week, Daily Item readers have submitted some amazing scenes for the Daily Item Reader Photos slideshow.

I used to think I had a good eye for photography – now I’m questioning that as we receive some of these amazing shots.

Brightening up our day

The Daily Item office is a little brighter today, thanks to some flowers delivered to reporter Marcia Moore, after she did a story about a lunch program in Snyder County.

When she was first called downstairs because she had a delivery, we had no idea it was going to be this pretty!

So thank you to the senders for cheering up our day, as Marcia has agreed to let us all enjoy the flowers and keep them in the office.

Some artsy feelings…

 

 

 

 

I know that I’m no good at art – I took Photography I in college and that was enough to teach me that I didn’t have an artistic bone in my body.

But this week I found myself taking several scenic photos just for fun. They’re from a bunch of places around the Valley – and I wanted to share them with someone.

Feel free to share some critiques with me – but try not to be too harsh.
