On the Campaign Trail

During the month of July I visited eleven different states with President Barack Obama. As the President began to kick his campaign into high gear my fellow photojournalists from the AP, Reuters, and AFP and I packed our bags and hit the road. The rallies, airports, and motorcade rides really begin to blend together when you spend a month on the campaign trail, but I'll never forget the laughter and memories made with my friends in the White House Press Pool. My editors, mentors, and colleagues deserve my gratitude every day for giving me this amazing opportunity and allowing me to stand on the shoulders of giants.

Memorial Day

I spent Memorial Day 2012 in Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery. It was the somberest of days.
