Photographer's Note

Road to the Presidency

A short interruption of my summer series for a photo of the place many people will be watching tomorrow, when at noon local time Joe Biden will be sworn in as the new and 46th President of the United States and Kamala Harris as the new Vice-President of the United States. This will happen at the West Front of the U.S. Capitol, which is seen in this photo, and which of course only two weeks ago was also the scene of the violent attack by supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump.

The street in the foreground is Pennsylvania Avenue, which runs from the Capitol to the White House and is used for a parade after the inauguration, although this year of course it will be a much smaller event than usual.
