January 2009, A Memory or Two

(Photo not taken by me)

I’ve honestly lost count of the number of requests I’ve had to post more of my exquisite DC photos from four years ago, this post leaving many of you gasping for more (Not to gloat or anything, but you saw this, yes?)

Well, alright, I’ve actually had no requests at all, but they probably just got lost in spam, which can happen with WordPress. Gremlins. :roll:

So, by popular-ish demand:

Bruce singing right in to my eyes at the We are One concert:

Bono desperately seeking me out while mouthing ‘in the name of love':

The President-elect – the next line actually read ‘Obama Diary is here’, I truly regret not lowering my focus:

Inauguration Day

I don’t know yet if I’ll make it to the inauguration, but if I do you can look forward to some truly exceptional photos – like the ones I took last time.

This was probably the best – eat your heart out, Scout Tufankjian:

Although – and I shouldn’t boast – I got one of Sasha’s hands, and a third of Michelle too:

And this was Joe waving to me:

I also got Bush leaving DC – I wished him well, needless to say, while almost falling off the balcony with glee while I tried to focus:

And I managed to get about, oh, 97 shots of toilets – and you can never, ever have enough of them:

And I made a new friend in DC:

Then there was President-elect Obama, Denzil and me at the ‘We Are One’ concert – we were practically cheek-to-cheek we were so close:

I met President-elect Obama again next day, while walking down the street – you can see by his face that he recognized me from the concert:

More toilets:

Sadly, I also met some not-so-nice people. I’m a sports nut – so I was very offended:

More toilets:

The most impressive photos I took, though, were in the early hours after the inauguration:

…. and out the window of the cab on the way back to where I was staying:

It was a very good day/night. :???:

So, if I make it in January, you can anticipate more top class photography of this kind.

What hurts, though, after all of this, was that Pete Souza got the WH photographer’s job and not me. To this day, I will never understand why.
