Not sure where I will be situated yet amongst the crowd but could have a chance for some decent shots. Looking forward to it. Will have pics + vids this evening.

Ha, my main goal will be to make great photographs at an event with passionate people. I am not answering to a specific publication here just going freelance so I will have some freedom to make some unique shots I believe.

But a lot of it depends on what kind of space I get to do my thing.

Try to get one of those sneaky, strobe from below shots that makes him look like teh debbil. Funny stuff, and very professional.

Interesting event. I was really happy with my positioning...felt I got some good shots at the right time. Would have loved to get a McCain speaking shot against the crowd but was too concerned I would lose out on a good spot as he shook hands and exited.

The crowd was pretty intense but there was nothing really hateful. No kill him...no terrorist. Alot of yelling 'socialist' and 'nobama'. They were all about the booing at key points. I was surprised when it seemed like one the biggest uproars had to do with drilling...kinda strange. Overall he looked energetic and came off better in person than I expected.

I was shoulder to shoulder with Kenny Hulshof and Sam Brownback for about 20 mins. Uhhh...one of these things is not like the other??

There were some pretty funny hick moments here and there. Lots of grumbles at security when people realized they couldn't bring in their pocket knives. The only thing I thought was unbecoming of the campaign was from a PAC group that put on a dog and pony show as people left but you can't really fault McCain and co. for that too much.

Fun day overall.
