Its Obama!

Its Obama!

Four years ago I photographed election night from a scissor lift on the President’s left, and this year was more of the same. However last time we seemed so far removed from the crowd, that I was in disbelief until the next day. Being there last night made me think of the last four years and it made me imagine what the next four years will bring.

Here I am posing for a photo in the lift with other photographers after Obama won in 2008.
