behind the scenes
• by emilie
My favorite assignments when working at USA Today and the Washington Post were those that allowed me a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes workings of politics. I miss that part of the job a lot, but am lucky to have little local opportunities now and again to scratch that itch. Local democratic candidate for governor Rosa Scarcelli recently had a national video crew in town to film several television advertisements. I joined the fun to photograph in between takes, starting at Becky's Diner in Portland, and then later at Rosa's home with her family. The primary is just around the corner and I'm wishing Rosa great luck!
