Obama and Biden in Springfield

Posted by Katherine | August 26, 2008 – 12:25 pm

These two photographs show Obama and Biden onstage at their VP-announcement rally. Race has obviously been in the subtext and the overt conversation about Campaign 08, so what I like about this juxtaposition is the white hand waving at Barack and the black hand giving Joe a victory sign.

The first photo was taken by Raymond Cunningham. He’s from Homer, Illinois, and he likes to “go to strange places and learn about them.”

This next one is from wife, mother, and designer Katra Knoernschild:

These people had nice spots near the stage… or nice telephoto lenses.
