So, 11 months, 15 days, 5,000 miles and 9 time zones later, The BAG has finally made land in California (and it sure feels odd).

Because I seem to have lost a night of sleep somewhere over the past three days, and because I need to get used to blogging again on the PM schedule — and, oh yeah, I’m moving tomorrow — I might be a little inconsistent over the next few days.

With you indulgence, however, I think I’ll continue my YearlyKos debriefing.  I want to take a look at Obama, and to also compare the Clinton and Edwards “break out” sessions.

By the way, if you’ve emailed me, sit tight.  I’m still working off that back up machine and I haven’t gotten my mail to work yet.

Finally, you should know that the last month was really an important one for the site.  The three-and-a-half weeks in New York raised many new opportunities — especially to showcase more original photojournalism.  Along the way, I’m excited to say I’ve also been offered a regular column on American Photo’s web edition.  Finally, I’m still absorbing the impact of YearlyKos.  Besides making new friends and contacts (as well as confirming many others “in 3-D”), it provided much support, solidarity and insight into this increasingly respectable world we are all a part of.

As always, I am indebted to you, the BAG community, for all your support.
