Barack Obama Inauguration

Waving to the crowds along Pennsylvania Avenue.

Electricity was in the air the morning of Jan. 20, 2009, as Barack Obama was inaugurated as the 44th president and the country's first black leader. The streets of Washington were jammed with spectators hoping to get a glimpse of history in the making. I worked all day and into the night trying to assemble photo galleries documenting the moment and showcasing our photographers' great work.
