Still, although I can’t call myself a fan, and I know very little about boxing, I am fascinated by it. There is something about the way that two men can get in a ring and battle it out and usually, although they try to hide it for the sake of showmanship, can be friends and respect each others talents and ability. As brutal as it can be there is an art about it.
I did notice a distinct similarity between prizefighter and politicians. Neither of them show up at press events on time.
The press conference was supposed to start at 11:00 a.m. according to what I thought I read on the the press release. At 11:20 the press and the public were still standing outside the theater. Of course I found out later that the press release said the doors open at 11:00 and the event starts at noon.
The lesson here is to READ the damn press release. OK, so I skimmed it. At least I was early.
BUT, as I said the doors did not open until 11:20 and of course the event did not start until 12:45.
Now, the point of this is not to pick on the event people but still the stars could have been on time.
The REAL issue was that I was hungry. I had started the day at 5:15 a.m. so I could be at the courthouse in D.C. for the license story at 7:00. I left there about 10:20 to catch the metro to the press conference and arrived about 10:50. That Pop Tart I had in the car on the way to the metro had worn off.
The lesson here I think is to have some snacks in the backpack. You never know when the next chance to eat may come.
A photo I made on assignment for European Pressphoto at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day made the front of the New York Times today. Interestingly, I photographed this same woman and child at Arlington last year and that photo made the front of the Wall St. Journal.
I was sent by European Pressphoto to cover the arrival of Army PFC Bradley Manning for day four of his court martial being held at Ft. Mead in Maryland. Typical quick perp walk. Time from when he poked his head out of the SUV until he entered the building, about 6 seconds. Does not leave [...]
