Obama in pictures

Digital Journalist has a very nice feature up on Callie Shell, the TIME magazine photographer who shot the cover shown above.

She's been following Obama for two years and has recorded the most amazing pictures. To me, the most moving are the pictures of black parents who brought their small children to see Obama on the campaign trail. The mingled hope and pride in their faces brings me to tears every time.

See Shell's amazing gallery of work here.

Saw the photo just today - with his eyes closed (BO) and the joy on the little boy's face. I cried.
