The Big Night: Final DNC Photo Set

Select photos by your connection speed:


Thursday Night - Convention - July 29, 2004 - High Quality Photos (slower)

Thursday Night - Convention - July 29, 2004 - Medium Quality Photos (faster)

I finally have the gallery of the big night's shots online as of a few minutes ago. I'm sorry it took a day, but I shot over 800 photos that night alone (my rough totals are over 3,000 photos this week). This particular set includes 246 shots spread over eight pages.

These images focus very heavily on Governor Warner and the members of the Delegation as they celebrate this momentous step in John Kerry's road to the White House. There is a bit of redunancy in here, but even the slight variations between some shots tell a story. I hope these provide the Delegates, their familes, friends and interested viewers with a clearer picture of this dynamic event.

My head is spinning with thoughts and ideas today about this last week and I'm eager to take time to write a number of entries for this site. There are a ton of stories about everything from the politics to the photography to the technology and Boston itself that are percolating in my head and, for the moment, mostly coming out in conversations with friends by phone or in person. My time (and energy), though, have been pretty minimal and tomorrow begins the trek home. While I hope to not have seven hours of dead time to write in the airport like the lousy trip up here, I hope I might get some time on the plane (if you can fit a 17" Powerbook on the tray table). :) Whatever the case, I'm sure it will begin spilling out in the coming days along with captions and some improvements to the overall website.

Lots to come! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these photos...
