Photos By Carl Russo and Mary Schwalm
The Haverhill Gazette
---- — Every day all year long, Haverhill Gazette photographers take dozens of pictures of people, places, community happenings and breaking news in Haverhill.
Each photo assignment brings its own challenges and opportunities. The image readers see in the newspaper is the end result, but there is always a story behind it.
Today, in the spirit of the impending new year, staff photographers present their favorite photos of 2013 and explain how they got the shot.
