Presidential Watch Sunday: An Unprecedented Look At The Presidency ...

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.

U.S. President Obama is being welcomed to 10 Downing Street in London by British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown on April 1, 2009.

President Obama chats with Tonight Show host, Jay Leno off-set in Burbank, California on March 19, 2009.

Wrist Shot of the Month: New Gold Dream Supercase Submariner...

Introducing The First In-The-Wild Photos Of
The All-New Yellow Gold ROLEX Supercase Submariner
From le port de Beaulieu

Summer has arrived in the northern hemisphere and my pal, Francesco (who lives in Monte Carlo, Monaco) took this photo of his new yellow gold Rolex Submariner Supercase with the ceramic bezel.

This is the first photo I have seen of the all-new yellow gold Supercase Submariner with the blue ceramic bezel and matching blue dial in-the-wild. [In-the-wild meaning not a Rolex publicity shot, or a Basel photo, but an actual watch on a persons wrist who bought the watch.]

This all-new Rolex submariner is different in many ways. First, it has the fatter Supercase; it has a ceramic bezel with yellow-gold inlaid numbers and markers on the ceramic bezel. It also has the fatter hour hand and MAXI Markers. The Rolex Oyster clasp also has the new easy-glide feature, which allows you to micro-adjust the size of the bracelet without even having to take off the bracelet.

Francesco took this superb shot from le port de Beaulieu (cote azure) France. Thanks for sharing your great shot with us Francesco!!!! [Francesco mentioned he is taking some more photos of his Yellow Gold Supercase Submariner, and as soon as he sends them in, I will put them up!!!]
