Yes We Span Rally - Now With Pictures

This Sunday a fired up group of 50 or more Obama supporters met for a photo session and rally on Millennium bridge here in London. This was part of a global intiative to take pictures of Obama supporters on Bridges all around the world - full credit to Meredith Wheeler of Toulouse France who came up with the initiative and has been making it happen in dozens of cities so far all around the world. We had good luck with the weather on the day and it was a cheerful, chanting crowd. Check it out - that's Meredith in the Statue of Liberty hat.

This view shows you St Paul's Cathedral behind us.

There were dozens of tourists and interested bystanders gawping and taking pictures. Fortunately, I don't think any of us there were actually shy.

I'm so use to American t.v. that it never crossed my mind to think about the view from people over seas. Pretty cool. Too bad none of this was on t.v.
Good luck to you all.

Thanks Karin! I was there too and I want to say "Hi and Thank You" to Carole Bell who did so much work organising this particular event for her Obama Meetup group.
