One more to go with the JFK post I put up yesterday. It was an eerie day to photograph the school book depository.

I was four when Kennedy was shot, but I have hazy memories of seeing the TV coverage. Who knows what Oswald's motive might have been, but I bet there were lots of people cheering, thinking that Johnson as President would put the brakes on the civil rights movement.
We've come a long way from the days of imperfect but idealistic politicians who had real vision. I guess those people, if they even exist anymore, choose not to run for office -- and who can blame them?

Great photo. Looks like a medium or large format negative. The clouds really set the mood, and the photo itself has almost an antiquated look (aside from it being B&W).
Thanks for posting it.

Thanks for trying to remind people of what was and what might have been. And of how much we all lost that day.

Not a problem ... I have never had such trouble taking pictures. It was emotional. It's a hard, strange place to be.

I love that it is in Black & White and that the sun is not out, and that it is at an angle, and that it is beind you....and that you felt what you photographed, you experienced it....and time stood still....
