We Are One

Barack Obama's Inauguration kicked off in style yesterday on the National Mall with a legendary concert in front of an estimated 400,000 people. "We Are One" featured musical performances by an insanely star-studded lineup and speeches by a number of A-list celebrities (not to mention a speech by the President-elect himself).

The show went off without a hitch, and yours truly was fortunate enough to have a spot in the press section just Northeast of the Lincoln Memorial. I wish I had more than a 70mm lens, but there's not much I could've done after learning about the pass on Thursday.

Below are a few shots, and more can be seen on my Flickr site.
