My favorite Obama photo


I love this photo of presidential candidate Barack Obama with 5 month-old Daryn Bailey Binns. The camera lens beautifully captures the humanity of this man. This is much more than a robotic baby-kissing moment that many politicians take advantage of whenever possible, his body language tells the story.

Little Miss Binns is the granddaughter of one of my co-workers. Her grandmother is so proud of that moment and the rest of the office staff shares in the significance of that historic moment. The Senator spent at least five minutes with Daryn. There are several photos on the internet of this meeting taken from various angles but this is my favorite. We've discussed getting the photo properly framed and matted and having a special keepsake made for Daryn.
