I arrived in D.C. Sunday night to cover Barack Obama’s Inauguration for McClatchy, the parent company of the Herald-Leader. It was a long drive through treacherous, icy roads and once we got to Washington, the traffic in the city was insane. It took two hours to get to the convention center to pick up credentials, and then to the McClatchy bureau.
I also learned today that my primary assignment on Tuesday is from the south window of the top of the Washington Monument. How cool is that? There will be nine photographers allowed up there and we will rotate every few minutes before having to come down.
Walking about town Sunday night, I shot a few frames of some of the imagery of Obama that I expect I’ll be seeing a lot of in the next few days. I’ll add more of some of my favorite images to this post over the next few days.
Update: Here are a few more shots from Monday. Most of my day was spent walking, but I also had to shoot an assignment for the Idaho Statesman. While I was looking for the Idahoans(?) I stumbled on the Frankfort High Schoolers – good mojo there.
