    I'd love to see the EXIF data on all these shots. Looks like a hell of a lens here.

    He looks more like he's sleeping! Haha. That's okay (sometimes). It's a tough job.

    I love this shots of vulnerabilities that I've never seen in any president before.

    I bet he was trying hard to stay awake. When does the man get to rest? I am tired just thinking about it! Hail to the Chief! The man is about 3 years older than I am and his stamina is like a 20 year old. I guess excercising on a reg basis keeps the body and mind in check.

    "President Obama reflects"? I don't think so. They've got him meeting until his butt falls off. He's Napping!

    And, oh yes: _Gorgeous_ depth of field!
