In 1969, the Dade County Sheriff's Office issued an arrest warrant for Doors' lead singer Jim Morrison. He was charged with a single felony count and three misdemeanors for his stage antics at a Miami concert a few days earlier. When Morrison first got word of the charges for lewd and lascivious behavior, indecent exposure, profanity, and drunkenness, he thought it was a practical joke.

A kayak snowman is seen in the front yard of a house on U.S. Highway 35, in Fort Payne, Ala. Trees and limbs began snapping under the weight of a coat of ice in east Alabama Wednesday, blocking roads during a winter storm that forecasters said could leave as much as a foot of snow in the Tennessee Valley.

The winter weather has stranded thousands of travelers, closed schools and blocked highways, but who can resist a jolly happy soul with a button nose and two eyes made of coal.

Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and El Paso, Texas form a single sea of lights as the sun sets over the adjacent border towns on February 17, 2013. Once the area felt like a single city, with both Americans and Mexicans crossing into each other's countries with relative ease. Then came the violence associated with the drug trade, waves of undocumented immigrants, and politicians promising to wage war on both. As debate on immigration swirls in Washington, many who actually live on the border feel that all of the enhanced security has hurt the interconnected nature of the towns and cities along the US/Mexico border.   As I was working on this story I was trying find things that evoked the idea of a relationship; things that could possibly symbolize the relationship between the USA and our southern neighbor. One of the things I looked for was couples. I was hanging out at this overlook and noticed the group of people at the center of the frame and the group at the left. I noticed a pair of people about to enter my frame from the far right and waited until they were in the right spot and made a frame. At the same time the people on the right entered, a girl on the left turned to look towards them. For me, her gaze is what makes the picture special.
