Despite a mild weekend storm daffodils are starting to sprout up alongside the TD Bank building on Main Street in Brattleboro,Vt.

After a sloppy weekend of snow, rain and ice, it’s nice to see a little bit of Spring popping up.
I try to get out and find these types of images that show off the changing of the seasons. They work really well for what we call “Stand Alones” or “Features” which are images that stand alone by themselves without a story and tend to be more of a public interest type of image.
Working in Vermont, people really care about the weather and when it’s going to change again. So an image like this is going to get the community really excited that the dreary Winter months are almost behind us. ALMOST. It does look as though we will be getting a little more snow this week.
This is also one of those cool moments of being a newspaper photographer. You get to be out there photographing pretty much EVERYTHING. One minute it’s a car accident the next minute it’s flowers or kids playing. Every day is something different and interesting.
