Although this photo was posed and has no people in it, it has remained in my memory. Boston Magazine shot this photo for its May 2013 cover, just days after the Boston Marathon bombing. Each pair of shoes was worn by one of the runners at the marathon. So although this has no human subjects, I feel a human element. I thought it was a moving way to cover a tragedy.
This photo was taken by EIU journalism alum Dominic Baima last year during the FundEIU rally. This woman has so much emotion on her face. She is yelling, but you can also tell that she is proud and has something important to say. When I think back to the rally, I think of a swarm of people and her face. She stood out from the crowd with this shot.
