Updated pages: POTD 2004 and photos from a rally.

The experience of taking photos at the rally was a rather new one for me. I've shot at many rallies over the last year, but this was the first time when I really felt like I had a clue. Sort of a clue, though I had some trouble executing it. There were times when I knew where the good photo was, and I even anticipated one good shot two minutes before the rest of the media came to the same realization and rushed over. But at other times I didn't know what to do -- I probably should have just stood back and taken it all in to be better able to predict what was going to be the next good opportunity. Instead I ran around taking bad photos.

It was especially fun to see real pros there and to be able to compare their work to mine: the photos they chose to take, which photos they published, where they stood and how the framed the shots, etc. You can compare my shots to those from the Getty Images guy or the Reuters guy.
