Hi! Thanks for visiting my news photography page. These photos were taken by me and published by the Kinston Free Press while I served as a staff photographer there. I currently work on a freelance basis. Most photos were taken with an AP 2000e digital camera. (Yes, going digital was *quite* an experience!;-) I have tried to keep the file sizes down but still, some may take a bit longer to load than I would like. Hopefully they will be worth the wait for you. I think they are! These images are owned and copyright protected by the Kinston Free Press, therefore it is illegal to copy or reproduce them in any fashion. Thanks again for visiting and enjoy!! Donna
