And the top over the top!
*pardon me, i’m such a hopeless romantic person, so yes, i ENVY the President and the First Lady so much!*

A semi-private moment
“We were on a freight elevator headed to one of the Inaugural balls on Jan. 20, 2009. It was quite chilly, so the President removed his tuxedo jacket and put it over the shoulders of his wife. Then they had a semi-private moment as staff members and Secret Service agents tried not to look.”

Pete Souza, the current Chief Official White House photographer for President Barack Obama and Director of the White House Photography Office, really good at capturing moment.
Yes, it’s the moment *pardon me, all those photography theory*
Doi sakseus memperlihatkan Presiden Obama sebagai satu kesatuan paket yang lengkap. Figur ayah yang bijaksana dan lembut hati, sosok negarawan hebat, suami yang senantiasa hangat dan membawa romantisme, bahwa ya… Presiden Obama juga manusia biasa who eats junk food just like us and probably likes to share his strawberry pie 😉

Have we, Indonesians,ever  seen our President and the First Lady in such a warm, lovely moments just like in those pictures?
No offense, tapi gw sih belum pernah melihat Pak SBY tertawa lepas bersama Pak Budiyono seolah tanpa protokoler, atau curi-curi pandang ke arah Ibu Ani, atau main petak umpet bersama Aira, seperti yang gw lihat dalam foto-fotonya Presiden Obama.

Mungkin ada yang bisa share foto-foto our president dengan momen yang menghangatkan hati seperti ini?
*earth to fotografer istana, rojer, dikopi, rojer*

      Cuma gak gw masukin. Ada juga yang dia pelukan sama istrinya. Itu juga gak ada. Padahal itu one of my favorites lho, karena pelukannya tampak sangat sangat warm and genuine 😉
