Inauguration Photo Preview

I went down to near where I'll be standing for the Obama Inauguration. I am in the Northwest Standing Only section, the closest us commoners can get to Obama tomorrow.

The Northwest section is off to the side and the angle is such that I was worried that I wouldn't be able to see Obama being sworn in.

I think I'll be able to see everything that happens.  It's going to be a good day tomorrow.

Pretty cool that you get to experience all this. Thanks for the "street-level guy" perspectives and photos.
