What a day! What a speech!!
(Do you think there were enough photographers?)
There probably wasn't a minute that went by that some aspect of President Obama's day wasn't photographed. Browsing through the photographic record of today's events online is overwhelming! Hundreds of images I have poured through so far. But is wasn't always like this.
I overheard on the radio this morning that the first presidential inauguration captured on film was President Buchanan's in 1857. I verified that this morning before classes by googling the image and found an interesting page about the history of the inauguration.
Late last year I shared with all of you a new photo application created by Microsoft in a post titled "Let's Get SYNTHY!!". I noticed while browsing around the news sites today that they are starting to use this incredible software! Take a look at several photosynths taken before and during the inauguration at MSNBC.com.
