The entire Flickr account and photostream for The Official White House Photostream needs to be perfect, doesn’t it? From refraining from giving each photograph a snappy title to perfectly set up lighting/composition/other photo-techy consideration.
From this sampling of Pete Souza’s work during the first 100 days of Obama’s presidency, I envy his [Souza’s] job but also admire his ability to have personality oozing from each photograph.
While you can explore the whole photostream, these are some of my favourites (with the cheeky, but not too cheeky, comments that they wisely refrained from making):
- Clinton and Obama, two great men casually occupying the same room
- Fantastic party room
- Even the presidential party gets afflicted by rain, but more stately so
- Human moment
- Just a bit of Air Force One but you know how grand it is
- Like a husband-and-wife moment you intruded on
- Oozing elegance – what are the women talking about?
- Cute photo of the G-20 spouses
- Gorgeous lawn and awesome Marine One
- Heehee, using Blackberries to rule the world
- Strong hand
- Spontaneous “awwww” moment
- I would run with Bo
- Private moment captured so nicely
- I take pictures like this, but the subject is never so nice
- Perfect evening gown choice, perfect picture
- Coolest signature ever
- Neat perspective yields a really elegant shot
- Haha, they have a sense of humour to be captured wearing goofy 3D glasses!
