Point and Shoot is a monthly photo challenge where readers show off their photography skills.

Happy 2018 Point & Shooters! Are you ready to get to work on your January assignment? The theme is appropriate enough, “New Beginnings.” But remember our Golden Rule, you don’t have to be literal. As always, we encourage you to think outside the box.

Get your photos in before the last Monday of the month, and look for them online and in print the following month. Send your submissions to

Now let’s travel back to 2017 to see December’s submissions, with the “family” theme.  Your amazing photos remind us that families come in all shapes, sizes and species.

Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated.
