The Inaugural Parade

Barry S says he might be the guy you see wandering around DC with “a camera the size of a Mini Cooper and lens that looks like a brass canon.” That equipment could explain how he got this great shot of the inaugural parade. The men appear to be a special attachment to the US Army Fife and Drum Corps. (See Barry featured here too.)

Arlington, Virginia’s Mike Lynch (featured here) was lucky enough to be stationed at a spot on the parade route where the Obamas left their limo to walk. This photo captures so much about the day: the President and First Lady themselves; the crowd; the police, military, and secret service; and the media right up in the Obamas’ faces.

Phil (here! here! here!), another Arlington resident, but with heart in Philadelphia, caught the Biden family walking with their motorcade.

From up high on a bleacher near the White House, he looked down along the parade route:

If you squint, you can see the Capitol at the far end.
