— This image was a contender for The Week in Pictures. I liked the texture of the onions, the compressed feeling of the crowded work space, and the repetition of circular shapes in the fans and lights. Another editor appreciated the onion skins stuck to the fan, ready to flutter down as soon as it's turned off. In the end, it didn't make the cut.
