I don't normally talk about politics or religion much, it's normally safer to change the topic, but in the past year I've started to speak my mind. When I got the call from the New York Botanical Gardens that I could be photographing a presidential candidate the day after Christmas (Boxing Day) I was both excited and terrified. Thankfully it was the Clintons and they were super charming. Bill came over and shook my hand, I told him it was an honor to meet him, and he exclaimed in his cooler than school, raspy southern drawl "Nice!"
