Taken while on assignment for the NEW YORK TIMES, covering the Pennsylvania Presidential Primary campaign.  Presidential candidate Jimmy Carter reaches out to photographer Steve Landis.  "And now I want to shake your hand," Carter told the young photographer. 

"I thought I saw Mr. Carter glancing my way, but was shocked to hear him address me.  As I'm hearing this, looking through the viewfinder, quickly realizing that he is talking to me, with my left hand, I reached back out to him, as I snapped this picture with my right," relates Landis.
