Inauguration Day

Some of you may not know this, but I went to the inauguration. I've got photgraphs to prove it. Getting that press pass last month really helped me gain access to the White House and the podium at the Capitol. President Obama and former President Bush moved fast so many of my images are blurred. Please be patient.

It started earlier today at the White House. They wouldn't allow me to take shots inside the White House, so I had to wait until they exited.

Then they entered the limos. I was standing next to the car but I couldn't get a shot inside the vehicle.I must have waited for an hour to get this shot.

The next two shots were kind of tricky. I have a friend who was willing to share her motorcyle, so I hopped on and off we went to Pennsylvania Avenue.

I had to climb a tree for this one.

Here President Elect Obama is entering the Capitol. I would have gotten a better shot if he had posed just once for me.

As you know, there were many dignitaries who attended the swearing in ceremony. Here's a good shot. Can't you just feel the love?

Taking the oath.

In prayer.


Now I need to come clean.

I took these shots from my television. Many of the images were borrowed from ABC. I also switched to several stations.

I couldn't understand what these people were saying, even after three years of spanish!

I have lots more images, but I don't want to bore you. Also, I have probably broken many laws regarding plagiarism. I'll finish with one final shot...kind of a double exposure.

Good luck, President Obama!
