Inaugural Photo Contest Final Entries

The red jacket (above) really catches your eye on this one submitted by rossleetabak.

Another great crowd shot below from ewilfong.

Thanks to everyone who sent in photos or tagged them in flickr or joined the PoPville flickr pool which is still open to join if you’d like. I’m only sorry I wasn’t able to pick more entries, there were so many great ones.  I’ll pick a winner tomorrow. More entries after the jump.

Below AnneJuliet got really close during the parade, I was struck by the contrast of the Obamas and the ‘Arrest Bush’ signs.

Below is a cool shot from McGhee Street Photography.

Below is a super cool one sent in by a friend of Bryon Zandt which makes the photo look like quite old.

Obama Inauguration - Colorized B&W

Below SarahAnne64 got a great t-shirt.

Below Jess J. took a nice one titled “two great jackets”. Incidentally a friend of mine recently told me that she has spotted lots of guys wearing fur coats around town – anyone else notice this trend?

  • I keep wanting to chime in on one of these posts to pick my favorite one, but I’ve really enjoyed just about every single entry. How in the world are you going to pick a winner?!

    I’m totally screwed. This is harder than picking the finalists for the annual coolest pet in PoPville contest!

  • I dig the kid with flag…

  • I don’t know if I have a favorite – but I tend to like the ones that give a sense of the size of the crowd – like the second one. To me those can give a real feeling.

    Aw Man….

    Clearly the winner is The Dude with the Lion Fur coat and Man Purse (Murse)…
    He is my idol…

    That sh*t is “The Awsome”…..

    (sarcastic laugh out loud)….

  • I’m disappointed you didn’t have the B&W photo, lady with the tear running down her cheek in the finals — to me that was the clear winner

  • I definitely have seen a trend in grown men wearing fur coats. In fact on inauguration day there was a huge guy standing next to me in a big brown fur coat with a hood. When he had the hood up it made him look like a bear. Sadly he did not have a man purse/bag. I can send a photo if you would like.
