Faces at the Inauguration

I’m devoting this week to pictures I took at the Presidential Inauguration. I wasn’t in Washington, which would have been very interesting. But I had a front seat view right in my livingroom, while I was working on my projects. You can see part of my computer screen on the right of the picture. Above the television are souvenirs from Peru and Bolivia.

at my place

As you can see, I still have my Christmas decorations. I was away at Christmas and didn’t enjoy them, so they’re staying up a couple of weeks more. I love the red! The “JOY” piece might stay up all year, since Joy is my theme for the year.

I love faces; they are so expressive. I managed to catch some of them with my little camera, and here they are. Most of them were too far away for me to see, so I have to thank the camera men for zooming in on some of them.

The faces

The star spangled bannes

Isn’t’ it neat with the overlay on Beyoncé’s face while she’s singing The star spangled banner? Have you heard the comments that she might have been lip sinking? However, it was awesome!

Dr King monument

A face set in stone, the monument of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

girl present at both inaugurations

This girl was excited because she had also been on the First Inaugural Ceremony for Barack Obama. The girl on the next picture was on the first one too. She was there for a different reason. I guess she had no choice.

Malia

Malia is spending her teen age years at the White House. Very few girls get to do that. And she is modern, just like her dad, the President. Remember when he took office and there was talk about that he couldn’t have a Blackberry? That quickly changed. And here his daughter is doing just what most of the public did.

cameras

Everybody with their phone or their camera!

Al Rocker first to interview the President

Here is a happy face. Al Rocker was so excited because he got the first “interview” with the President on his second term. He got the first one with the Vice President, too. It was fun to watch. He had to yell several times to get their attention, and then he asked his question about how they were doing. Does it count for an interview?

Faces

Why did I just get women faces? No, I’ve also got some guys. Let me close for today with two samples. Tomorrow I’ll have pictures from the Parade.

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
