Special just for you, in honor of Barney Frank's retirement announcement.
This was taken at the Michigan delegation breakfast on Thursday, August 28th, 2008. That's Ann Lewis, Representative Frank's sister and former advisor to Hillary Clinton's campaign, former Representative Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, former Governor Jim Blanchard, and Congressman Frank sitting at the table.
If there is one shoot I could go back and do again, it would be Denver. Needed more memory, needed to shoot in RAW. Shoulda, would, coulda. And I am so much better at this now...
Ah well, it was fun while it lasted.

A two-fer for your Thanksgiving: This is the Peck's Drugstore sign that was uncovered while renovating the historic Peck building that sits near Division and Fulton in downtown Grand Rapids. From the Press:
"The sign has been largely hidden since the 1950s when Press archives show the store's original facade was covered by enameled metal, a popular way of modernizing older storefronts at the time. The bricks being removed this week likely were added during a later facade change."
Last time I went by they had covered it back up again, so I'm glad I made the effort to go down there and take a couple shots. Peck's Drugstore was a "focal point of downtown for nearly a century" according to the story, and was sold to Revco in 1967. Revco moved out in 1988, and the space has been home to various stores and restaurants ever since.
