America: A picture is worth a thousand words

One thought on “America: A picture is worth a thousand words”

  1. Imagery can only go so far. Sometimes it can sadden us, once reality sets in.
    I thought it was a rather dramatic photo, regardless of whether it was shot that way originally or was cropped out of something larger. And despite all the positive notes, there’s the inescapable undertone of Secret Service being necessary to protect the candidate, even in — or especially in — a crowd that seems to be so friendly.

    The photo, of course, is to show us someone’s idea of the moment. The reality behind the image could be something far different. The long shot, for example, might include police arresting protesters, or something like that.

... and that's my two cents
