President Obama Inauguration: Words for How We Feel Now

Over the past week, I asked hundreds of people in DC, to choose a word to represent how they feel about the inauguration of Barack Obama. I then took their portrait with the word. The words included “Proud,” “Hopeful,” “Skeptical,” and “Angry.” No one chose angry! But there were definitely some “Skeptical” people out there!! And “Curious” too. The result of my photos is this great video/photo essay. It’s really inspirational. The love for the Obamas is so moving. The video is helping me remember DC’s optimism and energy before everyone analyzes it to death!! —emily
