ON THE COVER
Untitled, by John Klar of Irasburg, Vermont. Mr. Klar’s wife Jackie is shown tending the one of their ewes lambing, as every good shepherd tries to do. It’s an “action shot” that gets the beholder’s attention and tells a story. On-hand aid saves lambs, sometimes ewes and the scent of fluids on the helpers hands helps the ewe to trust. Artistically, the shot is super. The scene is uplifting and hopeful. Five of the five above criteria: A bull’s-eye photo!
