A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

"Ever since I began photographing then Sen. Obama in 2005, I've tried to keep my eye on how people react to him. Yesterday, at the town hall in Baton Rouge, I noticed this young girl in the audience. I hope she vividly remembers this day so that someday she can tell her kids that she saw, and later shook hands with, the President of the United States when he came to town." 
– Official White House Photographer Pete Souza

Ha! I was so focused at first on the president's seemingly floating feet that I didn't even notice the awestruck girl.
