Voting stale

"Allen Young of Orem begins cleaning up the litter of promotion signs out front of Mountain View High School as the Utah County Republican Party nominating convention continues on inside, Saturday, April 24, 2010."

Its been a visually stale month. So much that I am actually admitting it.

I think it's normal to have a slow couple days in the month where you're shooting nothing too exciting. You know, stuff that lends itself to no emotion. Nothing that really helps readers connect and feel something from your photos.

But for some reason this month has been stagnant, boring. Maybe its me? Maybe being my own worst enemy and critic is caught up to my performance this month?

Whatever the case, after running around Saturday morning, I rushed over to the Utah County Republican Party nominating convention.

After parking a mile away and making the pilgrimage to Mountain View High School, my eyes lit up like a Christmas tree.

My pupils were over stimulated by the abundance of promotional signs out front of the school.

Naturally the eye goes to things it can read in a photograph. So I wanted to make something work that included the litter of words and corrugated plastic.

After shooting what I needed to inside, I ventured outside and waited, and waited, and waited some more. Finally this man lingered around before starting to clean up some signs.

I got a couple frames off before he wanted to start posing for me. So I packed up and headed out.

Alas, here are the few I liked from the assignment.
