The inaugural committee is urging folks to send photos of their experience at the swearing-in today.
In an email, they give supporters a link to the inaugural Web site.
Here’s the email:
Today at noon, Barack Obama will be sworn in as President of the United States.
Together, we will open a new chapter in our nation’s history, and begin the work of bringing change to America.
We want to see what you’re doing when the historic moment comes.
Take a picture when President-elect Obama takes the oath of office. Then send your photo to us. We’ll be posting photos on our website, and some may even be used in the official Inaugural book.
This is an inauguration for all Americans — whether you’re on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., or celebrating at home in your community.
People all across the country will be gathered together to watch history. We want to see how you will be joining in the celebration of change.
Take a picture as Barack Obama is sworn-in as our 44th President. Then show us where you were the moment it happened:
Share your picture of history.
The Presidential Inaugural Committee
