Jacob Johnson was a guide for Cowtown Ghosts, a new ghost tour of the Stockyards. (Cristian ArguetaSoto | Fort Worth Report)

I captured my favorite image of the week on March 8.

Stockyard ghost tour guide Jacob Johnson posed cross-armed in front of the famous “Stockyards Station” sign on East Exchange Avenue, where he frequently led guests through ghost tours.

In this image, I tried to capture a pose and emotion that shows his character. What added to this as my favorite photo is that I forgot my SD card so it was captured solely on my iPhone.

I shot this image centered with the sign about 8 p.m. — but despite it being late, the lights and grandeur of the Stockyards lit my subject for me.
