The President and The First Lady, in Tune with the Nation

228. Patriotic

228. Patriotic

OK, first up. I did not go to the Inauguration. I watched it at home on the television, but I had to take photos of the big event anyway. So this photo comes off the ABC News feed from the television. I must admit though, I’m a bit pleased that I managed a photo that looks as if it’s been double exposed.

In case you’ve been off the planet for the last two years, this is a shot of the brand new, first African American United States President, Barack Obama, and First Lady, Michelle Obama, and they are singing the National Anthem. The photo was taken minutes after the actual swearing-in ceremony.

Now, how patriotic is that.

I have such high hopes. Such audacious hopes.

    That’s inspiring! You certainly are not alone in your hopes. How did you get the double exposure? It’s striking.
