This Week in Pictures: July 2 - 8

This Week in Pictures, Buffalo News photographers covered a variety of events around Western New York, from fireworks and flags to a farm sanctuary in Watkins Glen and the Buffalo City Animal shelter. We also explored six architectural time capsules and 11 places to help you get away from it all. Take a second look at Elma resident, David Hanes who won the 64th International Junior Masters tournament held at East Aurora Country Club and the hundreds of Muslim faithful gathered for prayers to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, while the Buffalo Sabres held development camp at HarborCenter. We hope you enjoy looking back at this week in pictures.
