More images from the conventions

I’ve spent the past week recovering from the hard work (and great fun) of covering the national political conventions in Tampa and Charlotte. Here are some more images.

I accompanied New York Times National Political Correspondent Jeff Zeleny at a street fair called Carolinafest, where we found volunteers for the Obama registering voters in hopes of their candidate winning North Carolina as he did — by the smallest of margins — in 2008. That story is viewable here.

Sometimes you work really hard on a story and technical snafus mess it up. In Iowa — on a beautiful afternoon at the state fair — I followed Ron Paul supporters who had become delegates to the Republican convention. The story ended up freezing in the file server during the live broadcast and only half of it played. Here’s the full version.
