Inauguration 2013

This was the first year I was in DC for Inauguration, and to celebrate I went down to watch the parade from the balcony of the American Lung Association, whose offices are right on Pennsylvania Ave. It was amazing to see the parade participants from all 50 states and watch the POTUS and FLOTUS go by...and neat to see the Secret Service agents on the roofs of the buildings, which you can see in the photo above. We had a nice moment zoom lens to binoculars and waves at one another. ;) Enjoy the rest of the photos below. 

The President and First Lady had to ride through our portion of the block since it wasn't secure.

A quick sun-drench portrait of painter Martin Swift.

The sunset was gorgeous, albeit a little chilly!
