In came the President, and with my minidisc running in my shirt pocket, I began taking pictures.
First a few contingency shots, then a pause to mentally take in the wonder of it all, then lots more photos using a variety of lenses.
There was time to also photograph again the invited guests - I didn't have any idea who most of them were, but I figured I could work that out later. I had earlier asked the White House folks for a list, but they didn't have one.
Problem is, I still don't know who most of them were.
