GWB/MLK Day

Bush-On-Mlk-Day

(click image for full White House size)

I love the audacity

I love the ABC headline: Bush Says King’s ‘Dream’ Not Yet Completed

I love the presence of that third icon, the Stars and Stripes

I love the emotion in Bush’s eyes

I love the look toward (Martin in?) heaven

I love that the eyes are softer, but the tone gets sharper around King’s mouth

I love Bush’s choice of the blue tie

I love the contrast when it comes to engagement

I love that — like an asterisk — the White House photographer couldn’t quite capture Bush and King alone
