DNC Convention Wrap Up


Now that the last balloon has popped and all the freshly printed copies of the Constitution have been passed out to speakers, sponsors and supporters. It is time to reflect on the images and stories generated from the 2016 National Democrat Convention.

Also gives me the opportunity to pic spam my dear readers. You know I love you, right?

I had a remarkable time immersing myself in the energy surrounding the convention. It certainly pushed me to work harder at the art and craft of photography. I worked at whittling down my compositions to share the essence of the story. Certainly easier to type this than it was to actually work on it. There were many times when I simply stopped in frustration and took a few moments to refocus on what was occurring around me. It is my hope these photos show the passion and frustration of the rally protestors along with the professionalism of Philadelphia’s Police Department.

All photos taken with a Canon 7DM2 and the following lenses: 50mm f/1.4, 24mm f/2.8 Pancake, Tokina 12-24 f/4 and 70-200 f/4L.

UPDATE: Using the philosophy of Communism to shut down the DNC along with smashing capitalism and racism..of course. Also, is that the dove of peace emblazoned on his shirt? So many questions, so little time.

  • Love your photos, Tania, and they capture the spirit of the street outside the convention! The one that stands out because it infuriated me was the young guy, probably college educated, carrying the Soviet flag. Goes to show the Marxist indoctrination centers that colleges have become (thanks Frankfurt School, NOT! 🙁 ). The kid needs to immerse himself in some of Solzhenitsyn’s works and The Black Book of Communism and learn about the true horrors of life under communism.

      I’m glad you pointed out that photo. What caught my attention was the look of pure devotion in his eyes – the look of a true believer. With curiosity, I watched him stride through the crowd till he met up with his friends and then the story took a strange twist. And yes, I have photos.

      • You have me intrigued now. What happened when he met up with his friends?
