Republican National Convention 2008 - Day 1

A grass painted United States flag along Interstate Highway 94 in St Paul, Minnesota. Today is day one of the 2008 Republican National Convention in downtown St Paul. There have been a few protests, a few arrests, a few police raids, and many more to come in the next four days. The city of St Paul braces for who know what. I just hope these goof balls from out of town that are hell bent on destruction of the RNC don't embarrass the state of Minnesota. I did find this unexpected site while traveling along Interstate Highway 94 on the East Side Neighborhood between Highway 61 and the 3rd street exit. I drove by it three times to capture one decent enough photo to post today. I'm sure many of the delegates will see this as a welcome side as the make their approach into downtown St Paul.

Good shot for the occasion, but looks like its going to be drastically modified.

Yep, Gustav is drastically changing me being able to take any photos of the convention with very little going on today.

Great shot, a lot of effort had to go into that.

I traveled on 94 past this exact flag to and from Wisonsin this weekend. I SO wanted to go back and get a shot somehow! I'm grateful you did, its an amazing shot, I know how little warning you get before you see it. Thanks!
