This impressive, hand-painted banner and tribute to Cindy Sheehan's son Casey hangs inside the tent at Camp Casey. Cindy saw it for the first time just the day before.

Cindy Sheehan inside the big tent at Camp Casey. Behind her you can see the painted banner honoring her son and the camp's namesake, Casey Sheehan. To the left of the banner is an oversized, painted wooden casket with the names of the Americans who have died in Iraq inscribed on the side.

Soon after I had photographed the children playing with their parents signs I walked up on this fellow carrying the very familiar sign “Who Would Jesus Bomb?” However this was the first time I had seen anyone dress up like clergy to slam this power phrase home. The whole time I photographed him he kept his eyes sternly fixated in the direction of The White House. This gentleman actually looks like he could be a man of the cloth. If he is I think that would be pretty wonderful.

Dogman started off this series so I find it only fitting that Dogman takes us out. I hope that you all liked the series. It was very difficult narrowing down what photos would be posted from the over 1000 shot while I was in DC. I’m not sure what I will be doing next, more then likely it will be a few smaller series. I have a bunch of ideas running through my head and I get new ideas all the time. I truly love photojournalism and see myself sticking with it. I do wish photojournalism was a category of photography more people were interested in viewing or taking part in, but I am very happy with the quality of comments and responses to do get from the people that are interested in my photography. Thank you.

A police helicopter patrolled Camp Casey. There was a constant police presence providing added security for Bush, but also to keep traffic moving.

Cindy was in NYC today, and gave a speech in Union Square, explaining why she is running for Congress against Nancy Pelosi.

This sign either made people mad or made them laugh. One guy even started a fight with the guy carrying it. I was unsure if I was even going to post the photo but the sign made such uproar during the speeches I felt it had become a pretty big part of the United for Peace and Justice Anti-war Protest. So here it is in all its blasphemous bigness ;)

My first views of Camp Casey. The field of crosses and the tent.

 

When Cindy sat in that ditch on that hot, Texas August day in 2005, the world took notice. The world was touched by this grieving mother's search for answers to her son's death.

 

Camp Casey, named in honor of Cindy's son, sprang up near that ditch. For four weeks, thousands made a pilgrimage to Camp Casey to show their support for Cindy.

 

When Cindy sat in that ditch, she was a member of Military Families Speak Out (MFSO), an organization of military families against the Iraq (and later the Afghanistan) war.

 

As a board member of MFSO, I was sent to Camp Casey to represent the organization during the vigil's last five days.
