Some concert notes….
As the inauguration show kicks off in Washington, this photo offers the Obamas walking down the stairs of the Lincoln Memorial as part of the HBO “We Are One” extravaganza. The way Obama aligns with the statue visually plays with the sense that Obama actually emanates from his hero or is in some way his descendent.
This shot, on the other hand, by the NYT’s Doug Mills (via The Caucus ), makes it seem like 16 has his arm, or cloak, around 44.
And then, so much for metaphors as the incoming administration is seen to reanimate the American eagle.
