Simply amusing pictures – minister probably simply wished to show the affinity to people, availability, interest someone’s needs??

It would be interesting to know if you did all the paperwork to publish the photo taken by another person.

Actually he might have taken a good picture: the framing is not that bad.

You did well, have some fun pictures and a story to tell. What more do you want at the end of the day?

Although as you know your pictures are hard to understand without this many explanation which questions the validity of the _news_ content of your picture… But now I’m totally lost.

Moreover, I think you might have done the honorable thing, hopefully going from a part of that faceless mass of lenses that followed him to a real person, but then again I may just be overly optimistic.

As to it’s newsy-ness, being that he addressed you specifically, with out your prompting (more probably to your annoyance) it doesn’t invalidate it as being news worthy. In a fashion he was interacting with his environment that he happens to be in, which included you. Granted that image probably isn’t the best, in the same way that the yahoos at sports games lean over the railing and call out to have their picture taken, but it is an accurate depiction of what happened. If it hadn’t been your camera but a different photographer’s would you have questioned it at all?

Do you realize that you put in the hands of a politician something like 8000 $ ? 😀

God job !
