id: 23373
id: 23374

The Secret Service put a sign up. I feel I should mention they weren't very secret, it was easy to spot them

Oh yeah, the Patriots lost the Superbowl.. it was the only game they lost this season

Aw crap! I leave for 90 minutes and there's a HUGE line!

Yes, I really am this far away from the Kneller

I really didn't like how the Clinton fans were snickering at this guy. Very disrespectful
id: 23406
Some insane group was handing out propaganda
id: 23407
I don't know much about them other than they think that computers are ruining the world (I guess not their website..) and they think global warming isn't happening
id: 23408
The choppa! Get back to it!
id: 23409
This cop was on his phone
id: 23410
Some of the crazy vegans were handing this out
id: 23411
The line is moving! I'm advancing past the library!
id: 23412
The line went all the way back to Main Street, I'm not sure how long it was in total

Clinton launches into her speech
id: 23427
I honestly didn't listen to all that much since it was very similar to the ones I've seen on TV and I wanted to focus on pictures
id: 23428
It actually felt a lot like that first mission on Metal Gear Solid 2.. taking pictures while the speech is going on. People who have played will know what I mean
id: 23429
She was very hoarse, presumably from all the speech giving she's been doing in preparation for Super Tuesday
id: 23430
All alone out on the stage
id: 23431
I really like this picture.. someone else taking pictures
id: 23432
The speech goes on
id: 23433
I liked this flare effect
id: 23434
I moved to the back of the gym to get some shots from the center
id: 23435
These shots were tough to get.. I was in the middle of a dense crowd
id: 23436
Clinton goes on, in front of the flag
id: 23437
I thought this shot worked really well with her in the corner
id: 23438
Don't you point that thing at me

These guys think they're so cool with their nice lenses
id: 23444

id: 23445
There were a lot of people taking pictures with little point-n-shoots. You can see one guy to the right of the Hillary sign
id: 23446
There were also a lot of professionals like this guy
id: 23447
A fantastic overview of the crowd with the weird Kneller ceiling above it
id: 23448
For a few shots here I brought the ISO down to 100 from 400 and stabalized the camera on my leg
id: 23449
The shots came out a lot clearer
id: 23450
But they were harder to get
id: 23451
For some reason Professor Chou really stands out in a crowd
id: 23452
Everyone went ballistic at the end
id: 23453
Cops wouldn't let me behind
id: 23454
This is the closest I got, about ten feet away. I couldn't really see her because there were six layers of people between us and she's fairly short

Unfortunately James couldn't stop laughing for the pose.. as is demonstrated here
id: 23463
Mike started a new thing where he makes a mess, decides what the painting is, and then goes with it. This is apparently the Hulk
