INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE ...


Dear readers, I am participating in Alphabe-Thursday where *K* is for *K*nockout images inside the White House - and other private moments during Barack Obama's 2012 re-election year (by Pete Souza, official White House photographer).

My dear US readers are doubtless familiar with some of these images but they’re worth revisiting, don’t you agree?!













ANY FAVORITE IMAGE(S) HERE?
Do check out other Alphabe-Thursday posts  @ Jenny Matlock, Ruby Tuesday & Rednesday!
And, finally, thank you to all my dear readers who have visited or commented.
Enjoy,
XOXO LOLA:)

Great private photos. I did the tour of the White House several years ago
and it is a very pretty house. I was amazed at how small it is compared
to the photos we see of it...

You certainly have an eclectic array of pictures here.

I love your "K"nockout pictures, Nola. They really are knockouts.

I also enjoyed visiting inside the White House with these. My favorite is the little boy with nobody watching him work the phone. Do you wonder if he hit a speed dial button? I do.

Mrs. Jim and I visited/toured the White House several years back. I was sponsor for our college's Phi Beta Lambda (PBL, Business Club) the year our PBL National Convention was in Washington D.C.

Boxing has 'knockouts' and the little round built in covers in house breaker box hole are knock outs. You hit the latter with a hammer and punch to knock out the hole plug so you can put a wire through.

These are really fun! I love the pictures with kids in them.

That last photo is my favorite. A future president, maybe???

Great photos! Love Spiderman, Obama and Biden sitting snugged up together in the line of folding chairs, and that last little cutie playing with the telephone while no one is paying attention to him! (and the plastic trash can with plastic liner under that gorgeous desk!) Oh, and Obama in the rain -- how fabulous is that!

Great pix! Thanks for posting.

Obama on the rain and the one with the kids are kool! :) Great post.

So many favourites - the little boy in the spiderman costume, Obama relaxed and laughing with colleague on white chairs, the backlit one of him walking out the door.
Nice choices for showing a more relaxed side to the election process.

Esther Joy said...

Nice photos... Too bad you couldn't have been there in person and taken the photos yourself, LOL!

I try to remain positive about our country and although I dislike politics I do enjoy seeing the president with his phamily. I can tell he truly loves them and it makes me happy! Thanks for this nice share. Lots of good photos and an opportunity to see a little different side of our leaders. Have a beautiful weekend.

Very Kool!

Thanks for linking.

A+

The photographer has to blend in well so the subjects are mostly unaware of the photo artist is action. Thus, the captures do not look staged - the work of a real professional!

Mr. President with the little spiderman is cute :D
