Election Day

It's election day today so I'm posting a photo of one of the candidates, Barack Obama. To be fair, I wanted to post a photo of John McCain too but finding a favorable drawing/mural/image of John McCain (or Sarah Palin, for that matter) in NYC is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

That said, I did post a flattering photo of John McCain and Sarah Palin lookalikes three days ago on here. In fact, those two looked positively presidential in the photo.

Because of the election, I have the day off from work. I plan to sleep in till 9 AM and then go out for a nice brunch.

After brunch you march yourself over and vote young man! Nice photo. I can't figure out how it's done.

Thats a nice picture! Besides, I believe this election is going to be watched very closely by not just folks in the United States but also those across the globe!

Olivier said...

superbe cette peinture murale d'Obama. Tu as une journée de congé pour cause d'élection ? c'est sympathique.

This beautiful mural of Obama. You have a day off because of election? it's nice.

Babzy said...

The drawing is very good and your photo too .I think there is a special feeling in the air of NY city !

We'll all be following the election!
I am mostly curious about the "voting machine". Is it true that they are in public places? Are they like computers? It sounds quite strange to me, I have the impression that votes can be manipulated.
Could you tell us more about it?

Sorry some people aren't fair.

Very nice nice drawing of Obama. I like the tone richness of this black and white photo.

Do you vote, Ming?

I - and many others like me in other parts of the world - am anxious about the results of this election.

Jilly said...

Lovely image, Ming. He sure looks Presidential to me! If you want to see who my dog voted for, please take a look at Menton DP.
Enjoy your lunch and I hope the queues aren't too bad for voting.

Please explain to us how this photo of the VICTOR Obama was done. Its very cool!

Alexa said...

ming -- I appreciate that you want to be bipartisan here, but . . . great shot. Personally, I fully intend to make no bones whatsoever about the candidate for whom I cast my vote. It's all pretty exciting, isn't it?

Ming the Merciless said...

It's a graffiti in front of a store. I think it's stenciled paint.

babooshka said...

I hope you voted. I can get a piccture anytime, just ask the cartoonist next to me to draw one, like my blog today. Palin pit bull in lipstick, she asked for it.

Mame said...

It looks like the image was made with tape to me. GREAT image - a real historic keeper. Did you see that a New York Times paper from election day went for $76 on ebay. Crazy!

I am so happy that I took my daughter with me into the voting/photo booth and recorded the whole affair. I think that's why voting lines were so long - everyone was photographing their choice!

Congratulations on the win! Will he visit Canada first or will he "break" the tradition?

Todd HellsKitchen said...

I'm glad you didn't post a pic of Mccain... To hell with "fair"... You picked the right candidate! Woohoo!

Belinda said...

That is one awesome image Ming...Obama is set to be one of (if not THE) most inspirational people of our time. Congratulations to all who voted for him.
