    Love the expression in both images, looks somewhat the same but the images have very different feels. Nicely done.

    I really like the facial expressions and body language in these photos. They convey what Erin is feeling very well.

    The facial expression in the first one is typical of a brain dead Obama-maniac last November. The second photo shoes this maniac wondering where the change and hope is–imagine luring a small puppy into a cave and then slaughtering it with a sledgehammer. This is what they must feel like. The picture shows expression of desperate hope, followed by pain and longing for anything at all. The problem? It’s not coming.

    A work of art, in two frighteningly realistic stages.

    I like the approach here because it’s markedly different from the other entries on this blog, most of which show two similarly shot images of happy people. This feels a bit more real and it’s a less posed look overall. The opening shot where she is tearing her hair out is particularly expressive, but I like how her empty hand in the second photo communicates that she is still waiting for economic improvement.

    The photos deliver a clear message of the 08 election and afterwards.
