The old year has faded and a new year begins amidst a chilly start. The promise of 2018 awaits, as hearts are warm despite the cold. The Times welcomes readers to send us their best photographs. No matter whether they capture the brisk wind, a sunny smile, brilliant color, an unusual image, person, place or thing, please share. Photos can be of any subject, but we especially like people.


Please send photographs to David Adlerstein at Dadlerstein@starfl.com. For more information, call 653-8894.
