wanted to share these pictures

I am not a political person, and not trying to start a debate.
I am a photographer and a designer, and I think these are very good
pictures. I cant shoot people and convey emotion, and I feel these do.

Awesome. It's amazing how a single picture can tell a story.
The one in the ice cream shop had me beaming before I even read the caption.

Wow those are some amazing shots. I love the ones of him with his family and the shoes shot.

Let's face it, you are trying to be political.

Yea he was.

Beyond that I do like the shot of him in Illinois at the truck stop only because the photographer is right in that you'll never see another shot like that of him again. From now on it's a secret service life for him.

If it looks and smells like a steaming pile of poo, it probably is. P&R!

The shoes, man. The RNC shells out 150 Large for Governor Palin's wardrobe, you'd think the DNC could spare a hundred to get their guy a new pair of brogans....

Nice set of photos. Photography is one of those talents I just don't have, I'm always impressed by good pictures.

Cool photos, thanks for sharing them. It would be interesting to see a similar compilation for McCain. (Not meant as an endorsement towards either candidate - not that I'd sway anybody!)
