Using a film camera borrowed from the university's library, I walked around the seemingly dull streets of Menomonie, WI, searching for interesting subjects to photograph for my first (and only) photo course. I'm definitely not a photographer, by any means, but I was told I was good at capturing emotions. So I'll take it. Everyone thinks they're a photographer; I know I'm not. But, I like this picture. It captures a moment in history that I think is significant, for reasons personal and political.
