President and Me.
Every photographer wants one of his pictures to be memorable. Well,
here's my moment in time. The second photo below, will probably be archived
in the George Bush's presidential web site archives for as long as presidential
archives are kept.
While President Bush was shaking hands in the New Mexico crowd, I of course,
was busy shooting his picture. Unknown to me at the time, the White House
photographer was taking pictures of me, at almost the same exact moment.
maybe the photographer was taking pictures of the president, but they ended
up taking pictures of me.
A few weeks after his visit, I was searching the White House website for
the text of his speech and found this picture... of ME! Dang!
How cool is that! Little 'ol me will be a part of his historical record
forever as a Presidential web site archive.
Just in case you were wondering, Did I ever see that photographer that
day shooting the pictures? The answer is "no". I wasn't concerned with
finding them in the crowd at all. But after I saw the White House photo,
I was curious about that same question. So, I returned to my collection
of photos from that day, and sure enough, I found the photographer who
took my picture. There they were, in one of MY pictures. So, I guess that
day we were actually shooting each other, almost as much as the President.
