“I still prefer shooting film. It’s important for me to make pictures that look like my pictures. At an event like the President’s first foreign trip there were enough diggie cameras there to save the day. Its fun being the only guy shooting film. It was a great opportunity to bust out a long lens on the Hasselblad.”

  1. Barack Obama’s book, “The Audacity of Hope,” provides a catchy title. It has a taste of bravery mixed confidently. There’s nothing Pollyanna about that. I will not support almost everything he tells, but he’s our president, and then for me, he inspires trust. That will do more for a country than any volume of backroom deals. Hope gives us energy, and energy sustains us through trying times. Boy, we’ve had them. I’m from West Texas, and I did not vote for Bush. When McCain ran against Obama, I was a citizen of Arizona, but I gave audacious hope a chance. The fight for progress and laying the foundations of prosperity is not over. I’ve seen the quips of those that don’t think Obama is able to do it. But step back a moment. Would anyone have all of us fail just to tarnish the star of an incumbent for whom they did not vote? Keeping our priorities straight, let’s work together with this president and build our future.
