Rainy Arrival

Uploaded: August 04, 2012 05:09:42


We followed actress Nia Long around Philadelphia last Saturday, as she stomped for the "Obama for America" campaign, and to promote voter registration.
Here she is arriving at a popular South Street Restaurant just as the sky opened and rain poured down. She is accompanied by her son, Massai, and the ever-present Derek (for protection). At the restaurant, she was interviewed by a local Philadelphia radio talk show host.

Well done, Michelle! And commenting on shots of political events does not reflect my personal views (one way or the other)! ;-D #1478655

Michelle - I have just happened upon your gallery, and I don't know which photo to focus on and praise. They are all outstanding. You have done such a wonderful job of capturing all kinds of people in all kinds of situations. Your gift for "seeing" is one I wish I had.

Thank you for sharing.
