I offer these photographs I made of Barack Obama, in honor of his historic nomination to the presidency tonight, which coincides with the 45th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther KIng Jr.'s "I have a Dream" address to our nation.
The photographs were taken a while back at a relatively informal talk the Senator made in the Capitol to a group I was covering.
I found his manner and message to be uplifting, gracious, capable, genuine, engaging, and brilliant. I still feel that way.
