Good photos spark emotions. The picture of the plane hitting the second World Trade Center tower on Sept. 11, 2007 and the picture of the firefighter carrying the infant after the Oklahoma City bombing are two examples that quickly come to mind. But sometimes it's nice to see picture that make us feel happy. Here are two pictures from today that made me smile. The first one, shot by Associated Press photographer Mike Thomas, is of Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens throwing popcorn in his face after scoring against the Green Bay Packers. The second one, shot by Gazette Photographer Carol Lawrence, is a picture of local Chick-fil-A mascot Chris Loos playing around in front of the restaurant where he works in Colorado Springs. He won the distinction of being one of the Top-10 cow performers in the country.
