Mondays with Morie–Episode 5–History Museum

Missouri History Msuem
I have to say I’m surprised we have kept our “Mondays with Morie” going for five weeks, well, technically four since I don’t think a colonoscopy counts as an outing. We’ve been taking turns choosing where we want to go, so this week was my choice; the Pulitzer Prize photographs at the Missouri History Museum.

I have been an avid photographer for over 45 years dealing mainly with outdoor photography and occasionally foraying into wedding and engagement photos. I admire photo journalists because of their courage to go where the world’s events are happening. Since I don’t have that courage, I’d have to settle for being in the right place at the right time.

The Pulitzer Prize for photography is awarded annually in two different categories; Breaking News and Feature.

The Pulitzer display is part of a traveling exhibit from the Newseum in Washington, featuring photos that have been honored with Pulitzers since they began in 1942. St. Louis Post Dispatch, August 2, 2019
