Interesting Times…


Well the election is over and I’m operating on one hour of sleep.  WARNING: Typos Ahead.

Alas, Obama’s visit here to Charlottesville last week didn’t help Tom Perriello. Still, I’m sorry I missed the photo op. But without a local press pass I wasn’t prepared to spend 8 hours in line lugging a 600mm lens.

I’ve only photographed one president, Gerald Ford at the U.N., and I was somewhat underwhelmed. I’ve shot more politicians than I can count.

They’re all yesterday’s news. 

I would like to make a portrait of Christine O’Donnel  with a black mass motif, as I suspect she’ll be haunting the landscape  in 2012, along with the Tea Party.


Yeah, interesting times.
