In the Loop

OK, so you've probably heard and seen enough about President Obama's inauguration. Well I'm sorry, this is just too cool to not pass along.

Photographer David Bergman stiched together 220 photos to create this 1.4 Gigapixel image. That's right, giga as in 1,400+ megapixels. The photo can be panned and zoomed to incredible detail. It's like a 'Where's Waldo' or Highlights Magazine image for the Presidential Inauguration (well, the front of it anyway).


Feel free to make a game out of it. What strange items, people, funny faces or rude gestures can you find? Ten points if you count how many crying faces there are in the crowd.

That is doggone amazing. Check out Clarence Thomas sleeping.

Also check out Dan Quayle's hair-style (hint: he's right next to Tipper Gore) and Yo Yo Ma taking a picture with his iPhone.

He caught Hillary blinking, and some dude's face is clipped in on top of someone elses. Makes it look like a ghost or someone wanted in on the action. The face is in the same frame as the Clintons and Bush Sr (who gets points for an awesome hat).

Is it just me, or is Clarence Thomas sleeping? Way to be proud buddy.
