The oath heard round the world

I wanted to go to D.C. for the historic day but just couldn't get the funds going for the trip. I decided to go to the University of New Mexico and photograph a watch party. The trick of trying to make images was a 1.5 and 2.5 year old tagging along. It was tough because I didn't get to move around the room. I am glad I got to take my kids to witness history with a theater full of people. As President Obama finished "... so help me God," the crowd stood up and cheered. Here is my one historic frame. Its not a portfolio keeper or a contest winner its just a photo that tells history.
