Editor's Note: Sometimes even really nice photos might not make it into the print edition of the newspaper. There are many reasons for this.
Big news can break, classifieds or obituaries can be longer than expected, or we can simply not have enough room for all of the great work we do.
One of the advantages of the internet is that we can publish without worrying about the amount of space needed. Swikar shot this photo on Wednesday, on his way home. I think it's hauntingly lovely.
Also, fortunately, anyone who picked up Friday's paper got to see this picture, too. In color, which is not always possible. So, this is one of those times when we did get our favorite photos into the newspaper.
