turn and face the strange changes.

a tear drop for our new president.

***Sorry to post this a bit late. I'm still exhausted from what was a long, arctic, exhilarating and profoundly historic day. I can't really put it all into words just yet. I was one of millions drifting in that great sea of humanity. Here are some pictures.

the crowd trickles in.

Yeah, what she said. I linked to you on my FB page. Can you post more on the inaug? I can't get enough, not having been there, and all...

Great stuff man. Talk about good stuff lately. I'm always stoked to see your updates. Keep it up.

You killed it dude. I love all of the photos. The emotion and the moments...it's like you're telling a story that I think a lot of people forgot and just tried to make pretty pictures. This is the best work from the Inauguration I've seen hands down.
