Yakima felt the ‘Bern’ last month when Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., spoke at a rally at the SunDome. My photo team triple teamed this event. We all worked around each others strengths, which pushed all three of us to find a different angle and moment. It was obviously an energetic crowd, but what surprised me the most was the diverse range of people seen in one building. From the Latinos to the Native American groups, there was a strong representation of all walks of life and cultures at the event….which was cool to see.
