Jesse Jackson was far from the only American with tears streaming last night after Obama’s victory was announced.

Gueorgui Tcherednitchenko, originally from Moscow, now calls Paris home. He’s a talented young photographer who explained via email that he’s not a professional photojournalist — yet! Last night/this morning in Paris, he attended a Democrats Abroad victory party at the Palais M nightclub. This unguarded woman was there, too.

Phxpma likes to tell his own story about the town — Phoenix — where he lives. He does this with his camera. Last night at the Wyndham Hotel downtown, in the same city where John McCain conceded the election, this woman watched Obama’s victory speech.

Phxpma also recorded a video clip of the reaction to Obama’s win.
