Senator Joe Biden of Delaware was picked by Democratic Presidential candidate Barrack Obama as his running mate for the 2008 presidential election on Saturday morning. It was announced through TEXT MESSAGING early Saturday morning. Being in Delaware, I am glad that I was part of the media hype, even though for a short time that day.
Although, it was just a picture of some supporters carrying signs. The image went all over the world through the Associated Press in seconds after it was posted on www.delawareonline.com.
Here are some images of newspapers and websites that used the photos. Pretty amazing!
Then on Monday, I went to the Wilmington Amtrak station to photograph the senator during his campaign stop. We shared the images through AP and in minutes, they are all over the world.
