Larry Morris took pictures of drag races in high school and discovered he could sell the photos to the owners of the cars. A few years later, he sold a photo of a race car driver to the Washington Daily News. "The first time I saw a picture I had taken in print, in a newspaper, with my name under it, I was hooked," he says of his hobby becoming a career. His second published picture was of a row of burning buildings in downtown Washington during the riots following Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination in 1968. "It was a very exciting time to be in Washington," he said of the period of the riots and protests against the Vietnam War. In 1970, at age 25, Morris, who had grown up in Texas and moved here in high school, joined The Post. Today, he primarily covers high school sports, where the challenge is to "capture the peak of the action," and enjoys the variety of assignments at the White House and Capitol Hill and the adrenaline involved in hard news. Once denied access to a police lot, he said, "I keep a ladder in my car. So I just leaned it up against the fence . . . and shot the picture."

After taking the oath of office on the steps of the Capitol, President George W. Bush takes a moment to enjoy the Inauguration Day parade. Pictured with Bush are former president George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.
