BLOG: Not all photography makes it to the web


We put a lot of thought into what elements go where in print, many times hashing it all out at a 3 p.m. meeting. 

Sometimes mistakes are made, stories should elevate to the front page, and countless times frustration mounts from the realization a newspaper is only a finite medium.

The problem is that not all of our photos make it to the web. 

I realize there's a large chunk of you — our readership — that have stopped picking up physical copies of our paper. But you can still view our e-edition, our digital replica, in all its glory from the comfort of your own home with a digital subscription to us.
