Thank you for the honest coverage account from the people’s point of view. It’s refreshing to see faces (both of the candidates and their supporters) outside of the spic-and-span podium with shining lights and make-up.

I enjoyed the hunting photos and the closeup of Bachmann and little Miss Thayer. Amusing and slightly creepy at the same time. Your photos never fail to be interesting and thought provoking.

Thank you for your continued work.

For others reading this post, I highly recommend the Tumblr photo blog http://redelephant12.tumblr.com that Mr. Lott and other campaign trail photographers contribute to. It includes more stories behind their work and an up-close view of the human side of the candidates. I’m enjoying it thoroughly.

All the best.
