Sky Harbor Airport (PHX), July 2, 2017.
My contribution to this week’s WP Photo Challenge. Airports are not just a bridge to other places, but more importantly, they provide a way to be with my family.
For this challenge, interpret the theme “bridge.” You can go the same route as I did and capture any type or style of bridge where you are, or go deeper and take a snapshot of something or someone that acts as a bridge in your life: a link, a connection, a mediator.

She’s a little worn, but she’s still smiling. A mere six inches tall, Mini-Hillary was my constant companion during the campaign: Hanging out in my bag while I knocked on doors; standing by while I made phone calls; attending events and rallies; hitching a ride to the county convention, the state convention, and finally, the Democratic National Convention where I had the honor to serve as a district delegate for Hillary Clinton. Mini-Hill will be taking one more trip with me next Friday as I head to Washington, DC to participate in the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday, January 21st.
Though I’ve had the joy of meeting Hillary Clinton a handful of times, I’d never had Mini-Hill with me . . . until last August. She’d come to Reno to deliver a very important policy speech and I was one of a group of ‘super volunteers’ who had been taken to a side room and told we were there to meet with a ‘senior staffer’ from Brooklyn who would be briefing us on the campaign.

More snow fell overnight and all day. The commute was a mess, delaying my arrival. And it was a crazy-busy day at work, but I was able to step out for a few minutes to snap this scene with my iPhone. This is a color photograph.
