Photos from The White House


For the past two days, I've been looking through all 3,303 photos on the official White House Flickr. It was really interesting to see President Obama in some of his most intimate moments. Two of the photos below are among my favorites.


"Visiting the Great Buddha of Kamakura, in Japan, the President had a green tea ice cream bar with his hosts. He had visited this Buddha as a young child and said he remembered sitting in the exact same place having an ice cream bar." (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)


"We were walking through a locker room at the University of Texas when White House Trip Director Marvin Nicholson stopped to weigh himself on a scale. Unbeknownst to him, the President was stepping on the back of the scale, as Marvin continued to slide the scale lever. Everyone but Marvin was in on the joke."
