The OK Photo Issue

Near as I can tell, photographers from The Oklahoman archived nearly 30,000 photos during the past year. Our photo staff is seasoned, talented and hugely productive. In this issue of The OK, we share their gifts and hard work with you.

In these pages, artist Todd Pendleton crafted a graphic depiction of the 1933 kidnapping of Oklahoma City oilman Charles Urschel by George "Marchine Gun" Kelly.

You'll also find a history of the area's Mexican food offerings from our go-to guy on gustatory goings-on, Food Editor Dave Cathey.

Elsewhere, we take you to some of Oklahoma City's burgeoning areas, 23rd Street on the north side, with travel guide Steve Lackmeyer, and a Latino area on OKC's south side, with Josh Delaney. Of course, our photographers provide compelling images of both neighborhoods.

Plus you'll see news about real estate, fashion, technology and many more photographs.

I can't end this note without paying tribute to my predecessor and old pal, Phillip O'Connor. To put in photo terms, Phil arranged and framed this issue; I just triggered the shutter. Stay purple, Phil.

Enjoy, Don Mecoy.
