As the year winds down, we're remembering some of the highlights thanks to photographers sharing photos, including the following shots from Jean-Christophe Shen-ku Dupasquier from the New JBs' stop in Switzerland in September, and Piotr Siatkowski, from the Abe Inc. visit to Poland in June. Thanks JD and Piotr!

Piotr the shooter got shot himself during the soundcheck at the Jewish Cultural Festival in Krakow, where he caught this shot of Fred.
