Interesting juxtaposition Lannie, of two chapters in History,. The place looks deserted , but I'm sure the celebrations of clossing a circle, was heart warming to many. Nice composition and information. I think a tiny bit oversharpened, but otherwise thoughtful and well lighted place and event.
Thanks, Pnina. It was soft when I processed it, and I tried to sharpen it and went overboard. The original file would not support a print, I fear. Technically speaking, this is a failed effort, but it still conveys the overall mood that I wanted to capture. --Lannie
Election Eve, 2008, Livingstone College This was shot at Livingstone College after sunset on the eve of the 2008 election. Since Livingstone is a historically black college founded not long after the Civil War, this election was particularly meaningful, and there was a sense of quiet optimism on campus on this Monday evening before the nation would elect its first African-American president.
