Obama in Texas




A few scenes from the Obama rally today at Reunion Arena. It's been a while since I have covered any type of event like this, but I made my way up to the front as if I had done it yesterday. The last photo is a sight I had only seen on tv. No telling how many photos will be ruined by this new breed of cell phone photo takers.

Looks like you had no problem diving back into photojournalist mode. Terrific images. I'm totally jealous too - I haven't got to see Obama live yet.

Just like riding the proverbial hamster wheel.

Everyone thinks they are a photographer, especially if their hail-mary photos show only the background or the head in front of them.

Nice photograph.
