I like being what basically amounts to Morning Joe's house photographer. For a whole lot of obvious reasons. I get to interact with people I grew up listening to on my stereo or watching on my TV or reading about in the paper. And I get to capture moments like this one that happened earlier today.
Buckingham had been relaxing in the msnbc hallway for a bit when Hawn rounded the corner. And then they struck up a conversation. And I happened to be there to catch it.
This was a little bit before or around 8 a.m., and it seemed as if they'd never before met. When you think about it, that almost seems impossible. Both Fleetwood Mac and Hawn basically dominated the pop culture landscape of the '70s and early '80s. Didn't they ever end up at the same party? Maybe at Paul Simon's house? Maybe Woody Allen was there too?
I like this picture because it's just two incredibly famous people having a little chat before they go on national television.
