In spending part of the election’s final days capturing the atmosphere, Alan passed on this single photo of a campaign volunteer.
Maybe it’s the mood from the rain, or because it’s Sunday and I have the time, but I just keep spending more time with this shot. (If you click, you can see it even larger.) A few things I like are the little ball on top of the antennae, and the way it lines up with the person behind the truck, and then the distant smokestack.
I like the way this man’s jacket and pants hang like they do, and I like the way he holds the sign. It seems to reflect Team Obama’s calmly methodical nature as it approaches the end game — especially in territory where conventional wisdom tends to question Obama’s appeal.
