Photo of the Day
Gazette photographer David Bitton had to shoot the change of command ceremony this morning at Peterson Air Force Base. It's the type of event that can look the same as the last one: the exchange of flags between the old and new commanders or a talking head on a stage. David worked the event hard and came up with some nice images. I liked the way he framed Secretary of Defense Robert Gates with the silhouettes of soldiers in the audience. We ran it on the cover of Saturday's paper. The story was inside metro, but the photo belonged on the cover.
