Picture This

Some loyal readers have sent me an incredible photograph of the inauguration ceremony. It's a 1,474 Megapixel picture, which for you non-technical types means an fascinating, mind-blowingly detailed photo.

It's a panorama of the entire scene, crowd, Presidents, current and former, press, the band, everything. But it's so detailed you can zoom in and recognise a face in the crowd. If you knew somebody in the crowd.

You can pick out Aretha's magnificent hat and the fact that Clarence Thomas appears to have fallen asleep. You can see the sour expression on W's face.

All told, pretty amazing.
