2010: Year in Photos

Weekly photographers capture the lives and varied activities of local residents

2010 was a year filled with emotion and events that changed the community.

It was a year when...

...a plane crashed onto an East Palo Alto street, causing panic as people searched for loved ones;

...members of the community huddled around their TVs on a Tuesday night in November, anxiously checking the results of the Midterm elections and waiting to hear who would be California's next governor;

...the death of anti-drug leader David Lewis in June sent shockwaves throughout area, bringing people together to honor his life, denounce the violence and work to carry on his vision.

It was a year when ordinary people, taking ordinary actions, brought life to Palo Alto and surrounding communities:

The women's group The Rebekahs offered a rare glimpse into the often-hidden world of service clubs, holding a public meeting dressed in shimmering formal gowns at the Palo Alto Masonic Temple;

Eager students -- covered in trash bags, gloves, booties and painter's hats -- expressed their creativity and their school's core values through colorful murals at Walter Hays Elementary School;

Physical therapists provided care for the area's pets at Scout's House in Menlo Park;

A lone jogger, Eunhee Kim, took to the Stanford Dish trail for a run on a drizzly March afternoon;

And members of the Channing House harmonica club in Palo Alto gathered to play their instruments on a Saturday morning and enjoy each others' company.
