  • While doing a story on sheep breeder Donna Douglas, of Woodstock, at the McHenry County Fair, (that's her in the ring holding a sheep),  I couldn't help but get a kick out the 4H kid watching the judging in this manner. I love documenting humor. I've seen a lot of things at county fairs over the years, but this was new. This is part of the reason why I love photojournalism; you never know what's going to happen and often times the best photo isn't anything you ever expected. This photo was originally published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.
