Today was the day. George W. Bush officially moved out, and Barack Obama moved in. Everything seemed just a little brighter today. I have much higher hopes for the future.

President Obama’s official portrait was released the other day. There was a lot of fuss made about the fact that it’s the first presidential portrait taken with a digital camera (Canon 5D Mark II). Personally, I think it’s a little uninspired. I much prefer the image above by Alex Brandon. Whenever I look at it I think to myself… there is no spoon.
