WELL. I am proud to say I voted.
And offer my gratitude to Susan B. Anthony for her lifelong dedication to fighting for women's right to vote.
In 2003, digital photography was still relatively young, but "Advanced Digital Photography" was a requirement at RIT (I'm sure they just call it "Photo II" these days). At the same time, "QTVR" was this fancy new technology (I know! It sounds funny to say that now!) and our class undertook a Panoramic QTVR photo-reenactment of Susan B. Anthony's 1873 trial for voting illegally. We shot it in the very same Ontario County Courthouse of the original trial in Canandaigua, NY.
I no longer have a digital copy of this image (though I know there is a print being preserved back east). So I'm not here to show it off, just to share the memory. Our professor at the time, Doug Rhea, also deserves a great tip of the hat for helping to arrange this project in the first place. A very small piece of the larger image is still archived on RIT's site here: http://www.rit.edu/news/newsevents/2003/Feb02/story.php?file=susanbanthony
