Photo outtakes of 2018: Sometimes a great photo just doesn’t fit

Sometimes a photographer’s favorite shot just doesn’t fit.

Washington Business Journal photographer Joanne Lawton spends her year traveling the region on assignment, and each of those assignments produces dozens — if not hundreds — of photos. And all but one or two end up in the newspaper or on the website.

You can scroll through them in the gallery above, with links to the corresponding stories in the captions.
