Barack Obama’s motorcade arriving at the Vancouver Convention Centre for his talk on March 5th, 2019.  I couldn’t get a ticket or pass for the event so I waited a couple of hours for this photo instead. I waved at the motorcade hoping he’d roll down the window and wave back and I would have this epic photojournalistic photo, but no luck. That’s ok. I’m pretty sure I’m the only photographer who got this photo. There were no other photographers around at this point – the rest of the media took crowd photos and left. The 30 or so bystanders didn’t know who it was so no one had their cell phones out.
