The picture in the picture

Below is a link to a NY Times photo slideshow of the campaign - what I found interesting is that most of these pics show the candidates being photographed. There's few pictures that don't have people in the photos taking pictures of the candidates, or booms from video cameras hanging in view, etc. It's an interesting if unintended comment on the continually blurring line between politics and performance - the meta or self-referential nature of campaigning - that the voters in the pictures seem to take themselves out of the moment of meeting with or talking to the candidate in order to hold their camera up in front of their face - creating a barrier. The Times photographer, unable to capture the candidates alone, winds up photographing photo ops- photos of people taking photos.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and appearance. I must say that you've done a
amazing job with this. Additionally, the blog loads
very quick for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!

Hi there! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
Does building a well-established website like yours require a large amount of work?
I am brand new to blogging however I do write in my journal everyday.
I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your web site.
Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues?
A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my website
not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

I think that what you published was actually very reasonable.

However, think about this, suppose you typed a catchier title?
I ain't suggesting your information isn't good., but suppose you added a post title to maybe grab
folk's attention? I mean "The picture in the picture" is a little vanilla. You could look at Yahoo's home page and see how they create post headlines to get people
to open the links. You might try adding a video or
a related picture or two to get readers interested about everything've written. Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little livelier.
