Get The Point? by FireLilyAMG Get The Point? by FireLilyAMG
I was amazed when i saw this. A promotion of a controversial candidate, shown prominently in a small southern town, whose residents are predominantly... "Republican"... I'm sure you can imagine my surprise. I just had to capture it to show that people still can surprise you and not fit into the norm. To support their own beliefs, instead of just following the crowd.... and i quite got a kick out of the vehemence of the Palin statement. Priceless!

(I did a small amount of manipulation to fix the washed out overcast sky.)

I live in a 50-50 ish area, so we see a lot of republican and democrat (and 3rd party) stuff around voting time, and for a while after. I love this display though! I hope it wasn't taken down as graffiti :)
I hafta say, regardless of who I want as president, I agree FULLY with the Palin statement.

Oh, I also wanted to say that I love this photograph. You captured the two sides of the building well, and I am glad that both messages are so visible.
