23MAY2009: Washington DC, Canon SD450
Visiting DC, we had walked along the Mall to the Lincoln Memorial which was packed. On our way back we walked past the White House and as we stood checking it out, Marin One swooped overhead towards the south lawn. Obamania took hold of the crowd and people streamed towards the fence from the Washington Monument and the Mall. Unfortunately the helicopter blocked any possible view of the President, but it turned out not to matter since the helicopter took off and landed about 10 more times, probably for a photo op, just like the one that caused all that trouble in NY. Still with the billowy clouds in the sky and the monument in the background it makes for a pretty good image!
