This weekend I went downtown to shoot a few pics of pre-convention Denver. It's mostly what you would expect with banners, tree lights and red, white and blue bunting. Below are a few examples of how Denver spruced up the city

Pre-DNC Denver Pics )

The city wasn't the only thing to get cleaned up. Denver's homeless were also given a shave and a haircut. Well, as Jesus said, the poor we will always have with us. That doesn't mean they can't have a little pizazz! I'm all for helping people out and I'm sure of lot of the homeless appreciated the gesture and the attention. It may be worth it just for that. But there's something disgusting about the idea of cleaning up the undesirables so that our visiting conventioneers don't notice them. This is all part of the city beautification project fund specifically set aside for the DNC.

More to come...
