Pictures of the Year: A picture and its story
Kandy Freeman takes part in a Black Lives Matter protest in front of Trump Tower in New York City, U.S. January 14, 2017. Stephanie Keith: "I took this photo across the street from Trump Tower in New York City just days before Trump's inauguration. All major news outlets were staking out the Tower both for protests and for high-profile visitors. That Saturday, there wasn't much news and by 3 p.m. most journalists had left. I stayed because there was a small Black Lives Matter march coming from Harlem. Just as the sun was setting, about 40 protesters arrived. The snow started falling with big heavy flakes. Almost immediately I saw this woman. I thought she was so beautiful. I noticed that there were snowflakes in her hair and they were not melting. I thought, what a perfect metaphor since the right wing has named liberals "snowflakes", saying they are weak and easily take offence. I loved the contrast of the black and white colours and the contrast of her strength and the fragility of the snowflakes. I asked if we could make a portrait. There was a store under construction with a black facade covering the building. I had this vision of taking a photo of people emerging from the blackness of the facade with snowflakes all around them. I lit the other side of her face with the warm incandescent glow of the upscale jewellery store next door. It was like creating a studio environment with available light, during a protest. There wasn't much time because the jewellery store owners were yelling at us to leave, thinking we were part of the now-boisterous Black Lives Matter protest. I literally had 2 minutes to set up this portrait and capture it until she rejoined the protest. I got her name afterwards and sent her the photos. She loved them too. "After walking over 6 miles my Afro was a winter wonderland," Freeman said. REUTERS/Stephanie Keith/File photo SEARCH "POY STORY" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "REUTERS POY" FOR ALL BEST OF 2017 PACKAGES.

A 75-watt incandescent light bulb as photographed in a studio with an illustrative price tag of $13.51 (US dollars), equivalent to the Bs. 85.12 (bolivars) that it costs on average to purchase in Caracas at the official exchange rate of 6.3 bolivars per dollar, in Caracas September 29, 2014. Venezuela's economic crisis has led to some shocking and surreal price distortions that hit people's buying power dramatically. While the government of President Nicolas Maduro calls the country's minimum wage of Bs. 4,252 the highest in the region when converted to $675 using the official exchange rate, the galloping black market for currency considers it as just $42.50 when converted at the street rate of Bs. 100 per US dollar, the rate which many importers and retail outlets must use to acquire hard currency. Venezuela's annual inflation rate of more than 63 percent is the highest in the Americas, according to official statistics. Picture taken September 29, 2014.

Light-emitting diode (LED) street lamps illuminate a road in Langen
Light-emitting diode (LED) street lamps illuminate a road in Langen, Lower Saxony, May 23, 2013. Light-emitting diodes are taking over public spaces, saving thousands of euros in energy costs, although the price will deter households from making the switch for some time. LEDs are up to eight times more efficient than incandescent bulbs used in most homes but are still at least 10 times as expensive. The more expensive a lamp, the longer it needs to burn to write off the price, so it is more viable to use them in streets and hospitals than in homes where lights are off more than on. The town of Langen on Germany's North Sea coast has done the sums and two years ago became the first in Europe to replace its 2,583 street lights with LEDs at a cost of 1.7 million euros ($2.2 million). The town now spends about 79,000 euros a year to run its street lights - more than 60 percent less than before. Picture taken May 23.

A school pupil smiles as she touches the remote control of Nikola Tesla's remote controlled boat on display at the Nicola Tesla Museum in Belgrade December 17, 2011. The American inventor Thomas Alva Edison, who made the incandescent light bulb viable for the mass market, also built the world's first electrical distribution system, in New York, using 'direct current' electricity. DC's disadvantage was that it couldn't carry power beyond a few blocks. His Serbia-born rival Nicola Tesla, who at one stage worked with Edison, figured out how to send 'alternating current' through transformers to enable it to step up the voltage for transmission over longer distances.

School pupils look at Nikola Tesla's coreless transformer at the Nicola Tesla Museum in Belgrade December 17, 2011. The American inventor Thomas Alva Edison, who made the incandescent light bulb viable for the mass market, also built the world's first electrical distribution system, in New York, using 'direct current' electricity. DC's disadvantage was that it couldn't carry power beyond a few blocks. His Serbia-born rival Nicola Tesla, who at one stage worked with Edison, figured out how to send 'alternating current' through transformers to enable it to step up the voltage for transmission over longer distances.

Venezuelan soldiers replace incandescent light bulbs with energy saving bulbs in a house in Caracas
Venezuelan soldiers replace incandescent light bulbs with energy saving bulbs in a house in Caracas March 8, 2010. Chavez has promised to install thermoelectric plants with a capacity of at least 4,000 megawatts this year as Venezuela gets dangerously close to a major collapse in generation because of falling water levels at its main hydroelectric dam reservoirs. Government rationing plans and rolling blackouts in parts of the country have so far failed to significantly reduce electricity consumption in Venezuela, among the top regional energy consumers.
