I sat down today with the idea that I would pick a handful of images I took in 2008 that were never published. In years past I would have dozens of images that were good, but there just hadn’t been enough room in the paper for them. These days, we have so many outlets where we can publish our pictures. We can put them in videos, slideshows, blog posts, or photo galleries. There is still limited room in the newspaper, but since we can publish our images online, most of my pictures have been published somewhere. Once I started looking through my archived pictures, I had to admit, the ones that weren’t published really didn’t need to be.

All I could come up with was an interesting view at some area groundbreaking ceremonies and a picture from a protester at the State Capitol.
A visitor to the Capitol passes by as Susan Mills, of Oklahoma City, sunbathes in front of the Oklahoma state Capitol in Oklahoma City on Wednesday, March 19, 2008. Mills is protesting the fact that legislators accept gifts from lobbyists.
