President Barack H. Obama

So, in honor of President's Day, I decided to reupload this image. I had pulled it last month from "circulation" out of concern for unauthorized use. (copying)

I tripled watermarked it, including DigiMarc watermark which is embedded within the image (you won't see it, because it's in binary code)

So I'm comfortable sharing it with the public again.
I really take no joy in visibly marking my images, but in this case I had to make that exception.

Would you believe some people that first saw this image didn't believe I took it?

I stood in subfreezing temps in Wilmington Delaware that
day hoping to maybe catch a glimpse of the President elect at that time. This was part of the historic Whistle Stop Tour the weekend of the Inauguration.
To my surprise, being that I had gotten there about an hour after the gates opened, I managed to get a spot less than 120 feet from the podium . I think it was meant for me to be in that spot and at that particular time.

I snapped a couple hundred images from that day's events, including VP Joe Biden, his wife Jill, and First lady Michelle Obama. Some pics I haven't even uploaded anywhere and sit on my PC :)

I won't get all political because that is not the intent of my Blog... but I will say this.....
I thank GOD every day that there's somebody in the White House that seems to genuinely care about "normal" "ordinary" American citizens trying to make it day to day

God Bless the President.... and the United States of America
