Yup, I got oodles of Independence Day photos from all over Southeast Texas. I'll spare y'all a package-o-redundancy, but I'll post a few of the less obvious ones over the summer. Today's post lets y'all play photo editor.
Madison Foreman, 6, of Beaumont offers to pet a dog before the 1st Annual Calder Place Star Spangled 4th of July Parade at the BISD Administration building in Beaumont on Monday, July 4, 2005. Everyone received participation awards and special prizes were awarded by category for decorations.

Madison Foreman, 6, of Beaumont runs with an adoption kitten after the 1st Annual Calder Place Star Spangled 4th of July Parade. The parade ran along North Street to Lucas.
Obviously, only one of these images could get into the paper. I had a rough time choosing which one I preferred. The top one has a cluttered background and some light problems, but the action and connection between the dog and the girl is nice.
The second image is cleaner and has some interesting highlights on her hair. However, the kitten is not exactly pleased with the situation (she was running at the time).
If y'all had to play photo editor between these two images, which would you pick? Neither one ran, so my fragile feelings won't be hurt if someone says they both suck.
