January 18th (18/365)
In September last year I was lucky enough to visit the White House during a work related stint in Washington DC. This was during what we now know was the end of an era. As the inauguration comes up, I thought I'd share some of the shots I took during my visit. Hopefully I'll get to go back across future administrations.

Loving the Louis XV style furniture. I wish I could remember the historical context of this here room but unfortunately I can't. :(
Cheer up JFK - It might never happen! (Although we know it did)
JFK's official portrait by Aaron Shikler. Painted after his death, the artist took inspiration from a photo of Teddy Kennedy mourning at JFK's funeral.
State Dining Room
Where the magic happens.

Asked someone else to shoot - hence the terrible picture (selfie sticks aren't allowed in the White House)
This room probably won't get much use in the coming years

When I took this selfie I was sure that I'd make it back to sit at this table with President Clinton one day during the next 8 years. How wrong I was. Well - maybe President Chelsea Clinton eh? Forward.
