A picture and its story

One eager supporter
To some, it was as if she met a celebrity rock star. To others, this woman looks pretty terrified. In fact Robin Roy is one very eager supporter of U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. She had waited along the rope-line for a chance to meet Trump in person at a campaign rally in Massachusetts. Then the New York real estate mogul and reality TV star shook her hand and chatted. Extremely excited would be an understatement. All candidates with their eye on the White House, including Trump, greet supporters along the "rope-line" at the end of these events. It's a chance for voters and supporters to shake the candidates' hands, pose for a selfie or get an autograph. This rally, held on a Monday evening in the city of Lowell, was quite a big event. Thousands gathered in the Tsongas Arena, a venue for hip-hop concerts or ice hockey. The media including photographers are fairly restricted by the campaign during Trump events. Most images are taken from the main podium, at the back of the hall across from the main stage, with long lenses (400mm). After Trump's speech, a small group of news photographers and a TV videographer were escorted from the media podium at the back of the room to the stage to document Trump making his way along the rope-line. I took this photo with a much shorter lens (50mm) from the stage looking over Trump's shoulder. When I set out to cover this rally, little did I know that I'd capture a moment like this one.
