Happy Holidays From Hidden City

December 23, 2016 |  by  |  Photography  |  , , ,

 

Dear Readers,

The Hidden City Daily is taking a short holiday break beginning today, but our Fall Campaign is still going strong. To keep publishing in 2017 we still need $6,000 in donations to make our goal. We have eight more days until our annual operations budget fundraiser ends at 11:59PM on December 31. 

Help us ring in the the New Year on the right foot and make a donation TODAY

We will be back at our post on January 3. Until then, enjoy the following collection of our favorite photographs from stories in 2016 (and while you’re at it check out last year’s crop HERE.)

Happy holidays and warmest regards,
Nathaniel, Peter, Michael, Bradley, co-editors
