Obama Rally

Wide angle shot at the Change We Need Rally on the Ohio Statehouse Lawn. This photo is most definately best viewed large. You can also view the rest of the photos from this rally by clicking on my tag for changeweneed.


The biggest political event size wise in Columbus city history, with over 60,000 people in attendance.

    WOW! Amazing shot. Now that's a sea of people.
    Thanks for shooting this... I would have been so claustrophobic!
  • Brian 7y

    If this doesn't look presidential, I don't know what does.
  • Karin 7y

    Awesome! This is such a great shot of the mass.
  • Renee Needham 7y

    Wonderful shot to show the size of the event. We were there about 11:45 and could only get about 50 feet in from Broad street.
  • Matthew Carbone 7y

    I wonder where they all parked!!! (JK)

    Its great to see this.

  • jeffrey t. horvath PRO 7y

    an amazing sight to see.
  • Rohitashwa Jain 7y

    Amazing wide angle shot, very well composed.
  • Richard Wanderman PRO 7y

    That's great Bryan. Well done. Great that you were there and could get a decent vantage point. He's been pulling big crowds all along but the crowds this last week have been stupendous. I would be delighted if he won Ohio decisively.

    Thanks all it was a beautiful day to be outside, not to mention the feeling of watching something historic...

    @Ohio Bat Girl: I showed up about 20 minutes before the Rally started, and just started snapping. I had a press pass which made getting closer with unobstructed views much easier.

    @Richard-: You aren't the only one hoping that he takes Ohio...
  • Richard Wanderman PRO 7y

    Bryan, are you going to the inauguration with your press pass? I think it might be the photo op of a lifetime.
  • kiowas PRO 7y

    great shot!

  • Dave Spengler PRO 7y

    Awesome shot.

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Pictures with Frames (post a max of 5 per day), and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    Amazing! I'd love to view it large but your page is private. I was there! Right behind the podium, in fact. It was a blast!
  • Photographer PRO 6y

    @taidan5: Yeah I restrict things a good bit more, too many companies and publications trying to lift my images in general so I clamped things down a good bit.
