Throughout the day I have been searching the Internet for photographs of the election. I've been picky, looking for examples of what I consider to be great photography and quality work. This is the my second Photo Diary, here is number 1.
So, open this diary in a separate tab and check back from time to time, I'll be updating it regularly, lets all enjoy the night through the lenses of photographers across the country.
