Everyday Lives, Extraordinary Images

In Their Own Words

Favorite Photographs Of 1998

January 03, 1999

Two young brothers fishing at sunset on the Eastern Shore. A fan scrambling for a foul ball at Camden Yards. A woman and her dog dressed up for a pet parade. Unremarkable moments from everyday life -- until they are viewed through a photographer's lens.

The images assembled here were chosen by The Sun's photography staff as their favorites of the past year. It's usually the job of the photographers to illustrate someone else's story; here they get a chance to tell their own: how a particular photograph happened, what it meant to them, why it was significant.

We hope you will not only enjoy the artistry and technical excellence of these photographs, but also understand better how photographers bring the everyday to life in the newspaper's pages.
