Bernie Sanders speaking at a large rally
Bernie had a good run.

Feel the Bern!

I got to see Bernie at a rally in Springfield, Virginia on Feb. 29. It feels like a lifetime ago, both in terms of the primary and the world.

We were standing at the back of a crowd, on a completely flat indoor soccer field. There was just way too much going on for autofocus to work, so I had to stand on my tippy toes, adjusting the manual focus, with the 300mm zoom lens completely extended. I managed to get a lot of shots where you could see him, but this had the best focus. I think it came out pretty good.

Ilhan Omar introduced him and, man, can she hold a crowd.

I also posted a version of this on Instagram.
