Humboldt At Work

Work," some of us grumble. "I gotta go to work." Sigh. Sob. Why?!

The more content among us might answer, "Maybe you should find something to do that you love."

Good advice. But perhaps Maya Angelou's take is better: "Nothing will work unless you do."

Hence we sew, saw, chop, deliver, grow, husband, heal, teach, research, create, soothe, feed, cuddle, count, protect, defend, sell, explain. And from our clever hands and minds emerge sugar-crusted berry pies and babies, firewood and houses, cheese and flowers, robots and medications, informed citizens and, yes, princesses. And nearly everything more.

Surely our human world would not work (as well, or as interestingly) without many of these things. And so we sent you, our readers, into the Humboldt world to photograph people at work. You did a good job. It was a contest, so here are the finalists.
