The Whitehouse Has A Flickr Account

Last modified on April 28th, 2009

I accidentally stumbled across the official Whitehouse Flickr account tonight, and was pretty enthralled by some of the photos in the account. First thing that’s cool is that the Whitehouse even has a Flickr account. Second thing to take note of is that the photos are licensed with a creative commons attribution license, so basically you’re free to use them in both commercial and non-commercial settings as long as you do proper attribution.

I’ve always liked looking at candid photos from other presidencies. For whatever reason, I took a fascination with those from Kennedy’s administration, probably because there were a lot of family moments with him, and moments between him and his brother.

Here are a few shots from the Whitehouse stream that I think are particularly awesome:

Obama Signature

Clinton and Obama

Obama and Soldiers

Obama and Leno

Barack and Michele

And my personal favourite, a shot of Obama looking at a portrait of Kennedy:
