Flickring for Change

Official White House Photo by Pete Souza

Official White House Photo by Pete Souza

I enjoyed theWhite House’s Delivering on Change photoset on Flickr.

Interesting for me personally were the behind-the-scenes shots, which reveal, in mannerisms at least, that Obama the President doesn’t look a whole lot different than Obama the Guy on a Book Tour Who Maybe, Just Maybe, Could Run for President.

Reno, NV

At the end of a long day. Hardly the worst place to go door to door.

Charles meets Obama

This clip, courtesy of Patrick Dentler, an old Austinist colleague, sums up the campaign. Listen to this man, then compare that to the Republicans screaming “Terrorist! Socialist!” The fact that Charles’s message seems poised to win really does give me hope.

Obama … again

A month ago the Texas Observer ran the Obama photo on its back cover, along with a blurb about how it took off. The photo first appeared on the Observer’s blog, and it was their creditential I was using when I got the shot. This marked the 22nd time, by my count, that the photo was published in print or on the web.

It’s been 20 months since I took it, and the whole sequence of things is still pretty amazing to me.

By the way, the exhibit “Cowboy and Presidents” is making its way from L.A. to Austin and will open next Monday at the Texas History Museum. If anyone happens to see it, let me know if the Obama photo made the trip to Texas.

In print

I almost forgot to mention this here on the blog — 12-hour days at work lately have me pretty out of it — but a couple weeks ago my Obama photo and the story behind it were featured in the Austin American-Statesman. Story by Omar Gallaga here. And my mom with the paper here.

Also, if you caught the start of tonight’s Democratic National Convention and noticed the Nevada delegation wearing some cowboy hats, those were designed by the Tulle Hat Company in Castle Rock, Colorado. Tulle’s been using my Obama photo in some of its advertising, such as the mailer above.
