Presidential Watch Sunday
An Unprecedented Look At The Presidency

History never looks like history when you are living through it. –John Gardner

Welcome to the second installment of Presidential Watch Sunday. I would like to thank the White House and Pete Souza (The Official White House Photographer) for giving us unprecedented access to photos of the United States Presidency.

This first shot was taken on the White House lawn of President Obama running away from the family dog, named Bo, while he is taking a break from meetings–on the South Lawn of the White House on May 12, 2009.

Tip: I highly recommend clicking on each image to see all the great detail

The next two photos were taken on April 7, 2009 during a visit by President Obama to Camp Victory in Iraq.

This photo above is of President Obama receiving a fist-bump from a United States soldier while he greets hundreds of United States soldiers during his April 7, 2009 visit to Camp Victory in Iraq.

This next shot was taken of Marine One as it sets down at Winfield House in London, England on March 31, 2009 with President Obama and the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.
