In the background of this photo, the US Commander-in-Chief and his lovely wife are dancing to Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” for the Inauguration Ball slow dance. But you can’t really tell. What you see is a swarm of arms and mobile phones angling to snap a picture of the first couple in an intimate moment seen by millions and millions of people.
Something about this photo is sort of serene — orbs of light representing well-wishers struggling to snap a blurry photo of a red dot and a blue dot shuffling together hundreds of feet away. It was probably hard to hear and hard to see, but dammit, if you got a photo, it meant you were there. [Facebook — h/t @BrookeCNN]
