This Week in Pictures: July 23-29

This week in pictures is a visual highlight of stories covered by Buffalo News photographers, like the story of Paige Colebeck, the Amherst baby who entered the world on the side of the road. We photographed the Kerfuffle concert, Kingdom Bound, Shakespeare in the Park and polo.  James Karagiannis, whose ice cream cart business in Buffalo brings cool treats to the underserved, continues to get worldwide attention. Derek Gee wrapped up his week covering events outside the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia, where he found Mayor Byron Brown and Vermont senator Sen. Bernie Sanders. In sports we brought you the Porter Cup and covered the Bisons. We also provided you a closer look at Parkside Candy, Sanger Farms and the Old Mill in Williamsville.
