$DEITY help me, I'm going to be somewhere around here tonight as the 2008 election results come in. Erica is renting one (two, if they have them) Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lenses with 2x tele-converters for us to capture some of the event.
I'm nervous. Just last week, Phillies fans basically destroyed part of their own city, and that was because of a sporting event, where the stakes are...well, you might win your office pool? I'm more than a little bit nervous walking into an event like this, where the turnout is expected to top the million-strong crowd that comes out annually for July 4th fireworks, and where the stakes are considerably higher.
One million people, inside of several city blocks, hearing that their candidate of choice is now the "leader of the free world". Or worse, that he has lost to his opponent, after all the polls for the past several weeks have suggested otherwise.
But it should be a hell of a show: history in the making.
