Election Day Coverage for The New York Times

161106_nyt_elections_1558Yesterday’s election was a long and emotionally charged day for many, including myself, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to have been part of the Election Day coverage team for The New York Times. It started in the wee hours of the morning, capturing the scene at voting polls around Atlanta, and ended documenting the reactions to the news that Donald J. Trump will be the next President of the United States. Above, several women dance to The Charlie Daniels Band’s “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.”

After making my rounds at polling precincts, I headed over to Manuel’s Tavern, which is the watering hole in Atlanta for Democrats. It was surreal to watch those in attendance react as the numbers came in:

Then it was over the the Grand Hyatt in Buckhead for the Republican Watch Party, where it was all smiles and dancing:
