Emptying the trunk

SHARE Emptying the trunk

I am back at work today staring at the water reclamation plant across the street daydreaming about deadlines, delegates and blog posts. I feel like I might have post traumatic convention disorder. I haven’t had a good night’s sleep since I got back home. Dreams about covering delegates, credential mishaps and even ironing are taking over my subconscious. I think it’s because I have some video and pictures leftover that I wasn’t able to share with you. So maybe if I purge myself of these uploads, I will get back to normal. This first one was at the protests in St. Paul. It’s video right at the moment of chaos when the organizer and the police have a heart-to-heart over the changing parade route. I love how the officer says “you’re being unreasonable...again.” Like he deals with this crew every week for some other protest... This next one was taken in Denver at Invesco Field during Obama’s introduction video. I was wrong, there were 84,000 in attendance (not 70k)... and why not throw in my favorite picture of the conventions, right before Triumph insults me...
