The inaugural fall

"Following the inaugural speech of Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States of America, a young girl loses her footing on the frozen Capitol Reflecting Pool on the National Mall Jan. 20, 2009 in Washington, DC. Obama became the first African-American to be elected to the office of President in the history of the United States."

Yesterday I had the opportunity to go to the inauguration of Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States of America, in Washington, DC.

I will be updating with a full post tomorrow and may start looking into posting less words and more photos in the future. But right now I am completely exhausted and cold to do anything but post a couple sentences and one photo.

This was by far one of my favorite images from the day, and well, for all the wrong reasons. But what can I say, it was a great moment and a nice snag.

Anyways, full thoughts and a lot more photos within the next couple days.

Stay tuned.

This is amazing. Such a classy view, such a prestigious event. And why not throw in a little butt crack for good measure. She was probably in tears taking in the moment, something she'll never forget. And then...

I would be ticked if I were her, but it did make me laugh out loud!
