In the days following the election I roamed the city looking for scenes that would express the post election state of DC. There is a feeling in the air, a vibe, an excitement. It's hard to put your finger on or photograph.
That's what I was thinking about on Wednesday when I came upon a huge, electric, line of people along 15th street. People were taking pictures of the line and the media was there to record the scene as well. What was it?
They were outside the Washington Post building waiting for the commemorative colies of the post election paper to go on sale. The release had been pushed back all day and police were arriving to make sure that everyone remained calm and peaceful.
A few blocks from my office in the opposite direction you'll see a buzz of activity. Right outside the White House preparations for the inauguration are underway. I believe that they're building the grandstand on that spot.
