An interesting morning playing photojournalist. On most days life in Frederick is bucolic, a small historic town buzzing with vibrancy and character. When it was announced at short notice that a Presidential Candidate would be visiting and speaking at the Weinberg had many scratching their heads, it is at moments like this there is the recollection that despite appearances Frederick is Maryland's 3rd largest city (depending which Silver Spring suburbs you count).
With my studio only being a block away the opportunity to visit the campaign trail was too much to resist, all a little bit of a circus, albeit not quite the full three ring affair that might have accompanied one or two of the other candidates.
I've already seen much written about the event in the press and on social media, and don't feel any motivation to throw my thoughts into the ring. I saw many civil, tolerant conversations between people willing to listen to one another, but sadly more from ingrained opposing viewpoints. This explains my choice of thumbnail image for this gallery, combined with me listening to a live Stevie Ray Vaughan recording this morning, during "Life without you" he proclaims "We should really love one another, love is everything, without it we have nothing"
