Aiken Standard's Top 10 Local Photos of the Year

This past year has been a photo feast for Aiken Standard staff photographers. The newspaper publishes thousands of photos in print and online at aikenstandard.com each year.

In 2017, we covered storm damage caused by hurricanes and law enforcement responses to house fires. Twice this year, our photographers arrived on scene at house fires to find rescuers had saved canine companions from danger.

Our photographers were at this year's Battle of Aiken, the dedication of USC Aiken's pedestrian bridge, and we were there when a World War II veteran was granted his wish to visit his home one last time. 

Below are Aiken Standard's Top 10 Local Photos of 2017:
