casting a ballot

As on most occasions, I brought my camera with me when my wife and I went to the polling station (a local school). I didn't set out to create a small project, and I didn't really spend any more time photographing than I would have if I had only voted; but, within the 17 minutes between the first and last photographs, I had inadvertently made a photo essay.

John McCain at Saint Anselm College

I'm not really a political rally kind of person, so I wasn't going to attend this at all. But then I decided to get some outdoor photos; when I arrived, though, nothing was outside (no signs, people, etc.). So, not wanting to walk away with nothing, I went inside, despite the event being almost finished. I was able to catch the last 10 minutes, as well as some candids of him signing autographs. Here are a few favorites.
