Election 2008

I was lucky enough to be in New York City on election night, 2008. The crowds at Rockefeller Center and Times Square were amazing. I stayed in the crowds until late at night, and then heard the horns all night long from my hotel room.
Unfortunately, I had not yet fallen in love with photography, so just have a few shots from a small Powershot camera, which I have edited to improve somewhat. Now, I can’t possibly imagine going through events like that without taking lots of photos.
