2001: The Year in Pictures: Life's like that
By MIKE WILSON, Times Staff Writer
But if we had to come up with a single word to describe what these pictures are really about, we think relationships would do pretty well.
See the young Sudanese immigrants united in wonder as they switch on a lamp. See the toddler apparently Velcro-ed to her mother's back, a physical bond serving as a metaphor for an emotional one. See the Jack Russell terrier lagging behind in a race, its ears flattened in defeat as two faster competitors spring like superdogs over a barrier.
Envy, love, encouragement, amazement, awe -- our photographers saw all of these things in their view finders in 2001. Read on, and they'll explain why these relationships moved them so.
