On the Campaign Trail, 2010
One of the benefits of campaigning across my district is that I get an opportunity to see people, places and things in a context that is not common for most folks. Whether it’s the clouds hovering over Mt. Hunger with a hayride coming toward me, or seeing Senator Leahy being interviewed, the right place and the right time came wherever I was with my camera, or, in these cases, with my smartphone. Having this technology, which operates as a leash at times, allows me the opportunity to take the picture and post it in real time. This ability allowed there to be a narrative during the fall campaign of 2010, for me and my friends on Facebook, that told the story of our district and my travels in it without relying on the common “candidate and constituent” photos. I look forward to picking up the ball this summer and fall and doing the same. Click on any of the pictures to see them in gallery form…Enjoy!
