a day of emotion
I spent the morning roaming the National Mall today during the swearing-in ceremony for Barack Obama.
The point of my wandering was to try and identify a group of people who were going to be emotional during the Inauguration. About an hour before things got rolling I came upon three women from Cleveland who were stationed in front of a huge video screen.
I had a good feeling about them so I decided to stay there through the ceremony.
I got some really sweet shots of the Ohio trio but I also got a nice one from a nearby woman, Dana Pryor-Moncrieffe of Buffalo.
The day felt so historic that I went old school and converted the image to black and white.
