    How lucky you were to be right in the midst of these historic events as they were unfolding.  Thank you for sharing all these great pictures and anecdotes with those of us who couldn't be there.  This is a keeper!

    By the way, I really like the "iPhone" type pictures.  The technical "imperfections" in these types of shots really give them a power I don't think "perfect" photos can have--a sense of immediacy and intimacy, and a visual reminder that these monumental events were witnessed by, and driven by, regular people just like the viewer.  I've only ever witnessed a presidential campaign from outside the "bubble", and with these pictures it's like the bubble is not even there.  Priceless.

      There are some really exciting photos from that night event, but I really had to work in photoshop to get them to the point where they look like what the naked eye could see. I didn't change the content at all, but I took originals that were shades of black at got 'em to what you see right at the end of the diary.

      Here are a couple more!

        Love 'em.  Thanks.

        Now please tell me you have made non-volatile backups and are keeping them all in a safe place!

          they reside in several different places, including on my MobileMe cloud, DVD and CD backups, as well as several hard drives. I actually thought I had lost the evening photos at one point, but I eventually retrieved them from an erased drive.

          That's when I got serious and backed 'em up several places.

          I'm a musician, and I have always been good at backing up my projects, so I'm pretty well set.

          Thanks for the bump, though. It's alway a good reminder!
