I had a special day today, and was one of a few thousand that got to tour the Pepsi Center, home of the Democratic National Convention site in downtown Denver.
No matter if you’re Democrat or Republican [or somewhere in between] it’s an exciting time to be in Denver. Denver’s last Democratic Convention was held 100 years ago in 1908 – which makes this a historic moment, one that I’m thoroughly enjoying.
And as a photographer, it was fun to find a variety of viewpoints, and photograph everything as it was happening. I shared the experience with several other photographer friends, Jeannine and Brad Crooks, and Ronald Lewis, and together we enjoyed a fun-filled day in Denver.
The outside of Pepsi Center is decorated with the red, white and blue.
Already the protestors and propaganda are evident all around downtown.
Outside every restaurant on the Pepsi Center grounds has been taken over by the media.
Everywhere you look, the media is setting up and ready to go. The wires and satellites were everywhere.
And the stage area is amazing.
