Which Image should be the NYTimes Picture of 2016?

I was looking on the New York Nimes website and I came across an article called Choosing The New York Times Pictures of the Year. I love the articles that are about (something) of the Year.
I challenge you to answers these two questions for y’all.
* Which picture best represents 2016?
* Which is the best photographic image?

This picture grabbed my attention right away. The colors are so perfect in the picture, with the blues, the browns, the greens and the whites. I love how this picture like the many other you have seen tell a story.

Now, that I have shown you the pictures tell me what you think of them in the comments below.

My favorite phtographic image is the one of the lady planting magroovees in her village. This picture grabs my attention right away. The colors are so perfect in the picture, with the blues, the browns, the greens and the whites. I love how this picture like the many other you have seen tell a story. 

The picture that I think represents 2016 I would probably have to say is the picture of Donald Trump. I would have picked the Aleppo citizen looking at the destruction but that is not unique to 2016, the war has been going on for several years. In 2016, Donald Trump was in the news a lot for controversial comments and his presidency. He was even named Time Person of the Year.

    Zoe, what a great blog – your are good and impressed me big time. Your suggestion as to the picture of the year, unfortunately, you are right. The old boy made a splash and has become very controversial but here we are stuck for four years. Anyway, think of you often and miss your lovely smile and the huge hugs you gave me. I remeber that song we played when you were here “When I Look Into Your Eyes. you are a bright young lady. Hope you are having fun being exposed to the different cultures – a heck of an opportunity for you – enjoy. Love, Pops.
