A Pensive Presidential Candidate

Senator Gary Hart, a leading candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1984, leans against a post in the basement of a building on the campus of Ottawa University. Hart was waiting to join his fellow Ottawa High School classmates as they took part in their 30-year class reunion. Ottawa is a weird, backwoods kind of town. I remember watching Hart's mannerisms and facial expressions that day and wondering whether he wasn't thinking something like, "Why the hell did I come back to this place?!" At least I know that's how I felt when I attended my high school reunion.

Photographed with a Pentax MX and an SMC Pentax-M 28mm lens.
