This is not that great a shot, but I am proud of it nonetheless. Two men running for a Senate seat, the same seat they both ran for four years ago. And at this point they HATE each other, it seemed to go beyond even the outrageous party vitriol of this election to something very personal. Only they wouldn't show it. At this community forum, they were barely within two yard of each other, not even eye contact between them. This irked me, I could have shot two photos but that told no story. I set myself up with a longer lens at the foot of an aisle, it must have driven the organizers crazy because I did not move. Finally the exchange got so fierce that this moment came, and there was a photograph.
