I Wonder

Competing photographs.  From the same moment. Upon hearing news of Prop 8’s passage in California.  At two different campaign headquarters.


YES on 8 HQ:






NO on 8 HQ:













Deep emotion on both sides.   These photos made me wonder what caused the emotions.

How is the man’s life in the YES on 8 HQ better today than it was yesterday?  

I don’t know.


How is the man’s life in the NO on 8 HQ worse today than it was yesterday?  

I do know.

  1. I can tell you how mine is worse: I despise the fact that through no virtue of my own, nor choosing on my part, my “traditional” marriage is somehow supposed to have been validated by this travesty for human and civil rights. I don’t feel validated. I feel diminished. This is not love. This is not equality. This is not marriage in any form that I want to be a part of.

  2. Paul, where are you getting these wonderful photos? I want to create an election photo collage for my house.

    I have so much to say on this topic and no fight left in me for today to say it. Tomorrow…

  3. Deal. I will await your thoughts tomorrow.

    I got the Prop 8 reax photos from a random blog. The Chicago stuff is mostly from the WGN site.
