While I would never submit the photo for print publication, I think we can all enjoy this photo of Stamford mayoral candidate Eileen Heaphy wearing this toy firefighter’s hat:
I quickly snapped the photo with my iPhone but didn’t tweet or submit it because there’s no context visible. Heaphy was playing with her grandson, pictured in this family group shot at far right:
I don’t think the photo is representative of her candidacy or even the event I covered, which is why I didn’t use it. I think it’s nice, however, to sometimes see a political photo with a different or unexpected twist!
