Preparing for the Presidency

The Mall is spectacular!  As always, DC is magically exciting on this weekend before Inauguration.   Cruising downtown, I stopped for a moment to watch the preparations being made for Monday’s Inaugural events.  Yesterday, the White House News Photographers  Association had a lecture with Dennis Brack, former President of the WHNPA and Jason Reed of Reuters on photographing the presidency.   The talk was a prelude to a show entitled “Executive Functioning” at the Edison Gallery opening Saturday night.   It features photographs of the presidency by WHNPA members over the years.  It’s quite a wonderful collection and everyone who put it together deserves thanks.  DC PHOTO BOOK just arrived and I am reminded of the various inaugurations I have photographed.  This year I am happy to be working indoors and out of the cold!
