  • As I stood with my hand on my heart listening to the National Anthem play at a Rosary girls swimming invitational in September, the reflections of four swimmers in the still water caught my eye.

The combination of lines, reflections and a bit of humor made for an image I thought would be perfect for this week's Perspective image.
