Inauguration

Photos: Watching the inauguration.

Unfortunately, I didn’t think to bring my DSLR to work yesterday, but I did bring out my trusty Sony W70 point-and-shoot to photograph the group of people who came together in the cafeteria at work yesterday to watch the swearing in of Barack Obama and the address that followed.

I’m actually glad that my CNN Live connection was terrible – I liked having the experience of watching with a group.  Where were you when our new president was sworn in?

Feeling Good.

by Jamie Sanford on January 21, 2009

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, indeed.

I am 29 years old. I have never been this excited about anything political, this was the first time I voted for a presidential candidate that WON (obviously not going into the Al Gore drama), and to watch him take oath and give an amazing speech, it made me feel so hopeful for our country.

I’ve already subscribed to the White House Blog.  I’m glad to see that the thorough use of the Internet will continue into this administration, I was already happy with what was being done with change.gov (now telling visitors to go straight to whitehouse.gov) after the election, President Obama clearly has smart people behind him who are putting the full power of this environment to good use.

Here’s to 4 years of success, prosperity and yes, change, for the US.
