The last few days I had to adjust my central time body clock to pre-dawn eastern time wake-ups while covering my tenth Kentucky Derby. Even through I know someone who would beg to differ, I hate getting up crazy early to start work and today was one of those days.
This particular photo hangs in my bathroom…. you woudn’t believe how many times I have been asked… “who this guy next to Obama?”
I can’t help thinking about Hillary Clinton every time I visit Indianapolis. Five years ago today I was following the future secretary of state in the Hoosier state. I still remember that the weather that day was hot enough to blind you with sweat.
Last night I photographed what turned out to be a scarcely attended candlelight vigil against gun violence, interestingly enough, organized by the former Obama campaign.
Yesterday was another day in the elements waiting for events to take place while fending of questions from unstable passers-by asking odd questions about the funeral inside and commiserating with my camera equipped colleagues on the sidewalk.
