Two ships, one inbound, the other outbound, pass one another on a foggy Lake Superior on a recent bitterly cold night. Each glows a different color from their onboard lighting: one orange from sodium vapor, the other crackling white with LEDs. Bob King / rking@duluthnews.com4 / 5

Final frames

I love taking photos, but sometimes there's no room in the newspaper for random images taken on the fly. That's why on this, my last Blink for the News Tribune, I put together a few photos of things that moved me. Simple stuff we all enjoy — a moment, patterns and all things Lake Superior. When I retire next week, I'll leave the paper and all the wonderful people and adventures that have been a formative part of my life. But I know I'll never be able to stop my brain from responding to moments and wonders by lifting a camera and framing them inside a simple rectangle. A rectangle that's framed my life.
