Hanging with Friends!

I was cleaning up my hard drive from ’07 and found this fun picture. Last fall I was hired to photograph the Liberty Medal Awards in Philadelphia. Bono was the recipient in 2007 for all the wonderful work he has done in Africa to combat poverty and AIDS. President George H.W. Bush was there to present Bono with the award. In 2006 President Bush and President Bill Clinton were the recipients for their efforts to aid the victims of the tsunami in Southeast Asia. My friends think this photo is such a “hoot”. I was busy photographing a cocktail reception when President Bush ordered his Secret Services agent to confiscate my cameras. Yikes!!! I wondered what did I do wrong. He then asked me to stand by him and Bono and he told his SS agent to take our picture. As you can see I was really caught off guard.bono.jpg
