Joe Biden is the president, but Bernie Sanders is an icon.

Their ascensions occurred on January 20 in Washington, D.C., at the inaugural ceremony at which Biden was formally elevated to the U.S. presidency. Sanders, a political independent and Vermont's junior senator, showed up informally — wearing gear that's true to himself and his home state: wool mittens made by an Essex Junction school teacher and a Burton jacket. His mask was blue, and disposable.

A candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination last year,  Sanders sat alone on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, socially distant, legs and arms crossed, and dressed for the weather (downright cold by D.C. standards). It was there that Brendan Smialowski, a photographer for Agence France-Presse, captured the shot seen 'round the world.

Once upon  a time, before tourists took pictures of themselves, they took pictures of church steeples, autumn leaves and village greens — particularly in Vermont. Many of those images depict the Northeast Kingdom town of Peacham, an off-the-main-road slice of paradise that is said to be the most photographed town in New England.

Who's to argue? (Except maybe Craftsbury.)

"The church has been photographed a lot," local historian Johanna Branson said. "A lot, a lot, a lot."

Now the Peacham Congregational Church is seeking selfies — that is, asking photographers to submit images of the handsome white clapboard structure whose spire pierces the village sky,  and whose glory days are perhaps behind it. In the "Most Photographed" competition, money will be raised by people voting for their favorite picture at the July 16 Peacham Community Picnic, paying $1 each to cast a ballot.

The contest will raise money to help repair the building's clapboards and foundation, and to spruce up the paint job.
