The National Post picked the best pix of 2011 election and my photo of NDP leader Jack Layton playing accordion for MP Jack Harris in O’Brien’s Music store on Water Street in St. John’s came in at #4.  Thank you National Post photo editors!

I covered the leaders visits to Newfoundland for Reuters and if you count up the photo credits at the National Post’s Best Photos of 2011 Election gallery   you’ll see that 36 of the 42 were shot by Reuters photographers. Do check it out, there are some great photos.

Special kudos to Ottawa based Chris Wattie who, despite some mind numbing photo ops as he toured with the leaders, still managed to make great pictures that brought to life the election campaign.
