Born and raised in Washington, D.C. I had never seen a President or even a presidential motorcade - kind of incredible. And now, how lucky. Via my job at The Greater Bethesda-Chevy Chase Chamber of Commerce and by invitation from the Office of Maryland Senator Ben Cardin, my colleagues and I watched a recent speech on the Affordable Care Act (ACA). We were invited to stand behind him on the podium. But, hey, how would I get a chance to take a picture of him or shake his hand from there!
Back to our VIP section on the entrance wing I shot these photos. On his way out . . . I got to shake his hand!
It was such an incredible moment for me. Also speaking were Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley, Senator Ben Cardin and House Minority Whip, Congressman Steny Hoyer and Congresswoman Donna F. Edwards.
