Sarah Palin at Missouri McCain Rally

    Newer Older

    Picture I took of Sarah Palin at the August 31st 'Road to the Convention' Rally. This was taken just after she entered, before John McCain delivered his speech to over 10,000 supporters in the T.R. Hughes Baseball Stadium in O'Fallon, MO. I liked the blur in the background, and am glad to own the excellent 70-300mm VR lens!

    Rob Bluey, howsug, WINTER FIVESEASON, and 9 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      @ Asmodeous - I prefer to think that it's the talented photographer that makes the good picture ;-)

      Hi, we are having an article for my school newspaper on the elections.

      We have Obama and Hillary pictures, although she isnt as useful anymore.

      do you think it is possible for us to use your mccain palin photos, with recognition of course?

      the school newspaper is called MLEC Harbinger

      Wow, amazed to find comments about Gov. Palin that aren't spewing hate on this site.

      Very cool photo. The blurring is interesting.
