Your Best Shot: Mel Jones

October 28, 2013 

Today’s Best Shot comes from reader Mel Jones. “My wife and son ran in the 2013 Pumpkin Run this Saturday as part of the Carolina Pacers, so I was standing near the finish line with my camera. The light wasn't great, but I got a series of photos of "Barack Obama" coming up on the final stretch with his Secret Service posse. I thought their costumes were a brilliant idea, and they pulled it off perfectly.”
