A Break From The Politics

And a look at Fall.

Here are some seasonal photos. My assignment on Thursday, October 23, 2008 was to head out to Rockingham County and find Fall, and some of the things that go along with it, so here are a few I came back with.

Politics

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on October 29, 2008 by bwarrenphoto

It’s all a pretty big deal, and as you can see I’ve been covering it from many angles since I started with the News & Record.

It has all been a great learning experience, learning how to approach, talk to, and behave when dealing with the sometimes touchy topic as well as maintaining a neutural stance during it all.

I quite honestly am a McCain supporter for many reasons, and I believe that he will make the best president for our great country for the next four years.

Now I know that many may disagree with me, and that is fine.  We all have our right to our own opinion on the matter.  This is the mentality I take with me as I go out on assignments such as Joe Biden’s rally in Greensboro.

Staying neutral is kind of hard sometimes when you get right in there with the people, especially when THEY start questioning you, but its good, and I have learned a lot from it all.

Political Signs

We all see them were ever we go right now.  Well I came across just a couple cases of trouble having to do with them.

Harriet Rabon’s homemade political sign supporting Barack Obama says it all in Greensboro, NC on Tuesday, October 28, 2008. Harriet made the sign after her original sign was stolen out of her yard on Saturday, October 25, 2008, only about five days after putting the sign in her front yard. Harriet says “We just need to respect one another” and is most angered that someone came in her yard to take the sign.  (Brandon Warren, News-Record)

Early Voting

Guilford County may have, or came close to breaking the early voting record for the county.

According to the county’s Board of Elections 73,923 voters have cast their votes, which is about 1/5 of a total number of regestered voters (340,000).  The record was set at the last presidental election in 2004 with 77, 857 earliy voters, 26% of the regestered population at that time.

Due to all of this I made a trip down to the Guilford County Center in Greensboro, NC to see how the turn out was.

Recently Decided

As I hear about this group of Americans that have not made of their mind who they would like to be in the White House for the next four years, I was curious as to what was making the decision so hard.

I came across Mr. Brano Coleman in Greensboro, NC on Friday, October 24, 2008. He had just recently decided to vote for Barack Obama on Monday, October 20, 2008 due mostly to the ages of the candidates.

Mr. Coleman decided against John McCain because of his age, he thinks he is too old, and had a higher chance of health complications, and possible death due to this, and if death was to knock at McCain’s door, he does not feel Sarah Palin is up to the task.

Of course Brano’s reason for voting against the McCain campaign was the exact reasons for voting for the Obama campaign.

Biden Came to Town

Joe Biden came to Greensboro, NC on Monday, October 27, 2008.  Scott Hoffman and myself covered the event.

I had fun, learned quite a bit about working with “famous” people and the security that is always swarming around them.

Here are a few of my photos.
