For class, one of our assignments was to photograph multiple political events based around a specific theme (i.e. the occupy movement, gay rights, animal testing, etc). All events were to be photographed as if we were shooting for a newspaper. Three days before the due date, a $2500-per-plate 'fundraiser' was being hosted by Mitt Romney in Tampa. Of course, Occupy Tampa held a protest outside of the fundraiser. I took advantage of this and used the event for both this and another assignment for the class. These were my personal favorites from the day.
