Sights and Sounds of Obama’s Victory

I went out last night around 1 am to take photos of the celebrations happening in Union Square. At the last minute I downloaded a voice recorder app for my iPhone and hit record as soon as I stepped out the door. I recorded the entire next half hour of shooting photos and talking to people in and around Union Square and I think it does a pretty good job of capturing the mood. Think of it as a Manhattan field recording.

  5. Hey Fred,
    Thanks for your contribution on Kickstarter! I’d love for you to share these photos on the 11/4/08 Flickr page…

    And if you can wed the audio to some kind of slideshow, you could upload it to my website – The site is trying to collect videos from that day, but I’m always open to a little Chris Marker action.
