I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

A Capitol Time

Here are some pictures from Washington. Most of my pictures turned out to be of crowds, because that's what we saw for the most part -- the backs and shoulders of our two million new friends.

Everyone excited. Everyone happy. Bunting draped in front of bars and restaurants. Bunches of flags on every streetlight. Obama in every shop window.

This is a picture from the Mall the day before the inauguration, while they were putting the final touches on the platform for the swearing-in.
