The Emerald Photo Desk has been at it again, producing some great photos for your viewing pleasure. So with that, we’re proud to present to you our Photos of the Week. Also, special congratulations to Jamie Lay who is the first non-Emerald photographer to make the Photo of the Week cut with his amazing photo from the Acrobatics and Tumbling National Championships!
We here at the Photo Desk still want to see the great photos you’ve been taking, as well! So send in your favorite photos every week to email@example.com, along with a short caption describing the photo (think: who, what, when, and where), and you just may see your work right here on the photo blog with ours. We’re excited to see the awesome work you produce!
