President Bush visits Chippewa Falls

On Wednesday, August 18, 2004, President George W. Bush came right here to our small town of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin (pop. 12,925). We got there with our five kids about 8:40 a.m., two and a half hours before he was to speak, and there were already hundreds of people in line.

I took a couple hundred photos for your viewing pleasure, using my Olympus c2100uz digital camera. I tried to get a nice shot of everyone I knew, in addition to some random faces. I also tried to capture the atmosphere with close-ups of secret service guys, special lighting, etc. I got some REAL closeups of the prez, as he headed our way when his speech was done -- he was only about ten feet from where we were standing!

Look through the photos below, and click on one to get a medium-sized version. If you want to make a print, be sure to click again to get a large one (1600x1200).

Enjoy,
