South Carolina Politickin’ part two

Well, that was that.  After going going and going for three weeks, averaging two assignments every other day (weird how that works) instead of daily assignments, it all came to a conclusion for me in Charleston, S.C., covering Rick Santorum’s primary night party.

The biggest part I miss about working at a newspaper is the daily grind.  I love getting out everyday and making pictures.  As a freelancer, this happens less often of course, but all the politickin’ made for (almost) daily work.  It was refreshing to get up in the morning and know I had to get the job done and make pictures that day.

Here is a selection of my favorite campaign photos from the second half of the South Carolina swing.  Stay tuned for the ‘behind the scenes’ photos.

As always thanks for looking and enjoy.

Santorum says it's a "wide open race" for the GOP nomination, even after finishing a distant third in Saturday's primary. He'd hoped to build momentum from a late victory in the Iowa caucuses.
