The group as a whole offered some nice moments and some presidential cache to boot! Tops was a great angle on a band performance. Right behind is a sweet take on technology and history as a woman takes a tablet photo of Abraham Lincoln. Third was a tough choice but the girl's expression plus great lighting made for a strong image. Other noteworthy photos included a great detail of a forging operation and a child reacting to a magician. People and dogs in funny sunglasses and goggles are cute but are often trumped by emotion, moments and composition.
