Inaugural images

Speech

There is such a thing as being too close when witnessing history, as you can see in the image above and in the video below.

Our assigned seat for Tuesday’s swearing-in of President Obama was in Section Two, Row Two, Seat 49, right in front of the podium, so the view of the speakers was obscured by a rail and the lectern.

It still was a pretty cool experience. Our seat was a few rows in front of Beyonce, Jay-Z and P. Diddy, but they probably had a better, unobstructed view.

Here is a video featuring some images from the day — the crowded Metro station, the throngs of bundled up people and the view from the Capitol steps — set to the first two minutes of Obama’s inauguration speech.

Yes, we did!
