Your Turn: Bush at the Garden

If you’ve been following the blog, or you get what I’m doing, or you’re one of those visual studies student who’s been getting a little tired of the professor’s brilliance, I invite you to lend your analysis to this image.  It was published in a special NYTimes “Year in Pictures” section in late December, and I think it’s really rich. 

A number of you have expressed the desire to make “the BAG” more of a conversation.  I’d like nothing better.


For context (and extra stimulus), the caption reads:  A video screen shows President Bush talking with a woman as delegates to the Republican National Convention in New York mill about and wander the hallways of Madison Square Garden last August.
