“…a day for organized marches and events in support of science across America and the world. Think about that for a second. People feel the need to organize marches in support of science in 21st Century America.”
It’s been another very interesting year for us. We could all benefit from less interesting.
We took a lot of photos in 2019. Many having to do with the aftermath of the 2016 (yes) and 2018 general elections.
Over the course of the last year we covered a number of government and political events in Missouri (and elsewhere, including Iowa for some reason), in the process taking thousands of photographs. Most of them didn’t make it into the blog. Some of the things we saw and heard made us smile, made us think, made us gasp, made us hope, and made us despair.
We thought we’d provide a retrospective of some of the pictures and stories we consider to be memorable.
We shoot hundreds of frames when we cover an event. This image was not included in our original coverage.
Again, I learned online of an organized rally and march on immigration to be held in front of the Boone County Courthouse in Columbia, Missouri, midday on June 30, 2018. I made the drive to Columbia, arrived early, and found a parking spot north of the courthouse.
It was hot. So much so that early arrivals staked out spots in nearby building shade and under trees on the courthouse grounds.
Did I mention it was hot?
These two women were at the front of the crowd of around five hundred individuals listening and reacting to rally speakers on the courthouse steps.
