photog friday: photojournalism and the presidency

Photojournalism and the Presidency. What a special place to be a photographer... the White House. Pete Souza, Obama's White House photographer sums this up well...

"Imagine someone combing through my photographs of President Obama in 2510. That really makes me realize that this is visual history I am recording with my camera." 

What a special place to be last week but among 13 photojournalists that have had this opportunity. It's one thing to sit in the basement here and look at Okamoto's photos of LBJ all day long, but another to actually talk to the people that were behind the camera. This was a very special night, so here are a few more pictures...
