Covering a different event today I noticed these two boys playing by an Obama campaign sign, and thought it was worth a photo.


I was assigned to cover Barack Obama's campaign stop at the Petersen Events Center in Pittsburgh on the eve of Pennsylvania's primary election. My assignment was to capture the event on video, but as usual I couldn't resist shooting a few frames for myself.

I came home from work today and couldn't resist shooting a frame of Madden as he played in our kitchen. The kid is still cracking me up.
