The White House on Flickr

There's been a lot of talk about transparency in government since President Obama took office. But did you know the White House has it's own Flickr page? I just found out today via The Awl and there are some interesting shots. Not exactly behind-the-scenes but at least more than the standard press conference and shake-a-foreign-leader's-hand pics you'll find on a news website.
If you want a little more spice, you can take a look at the Awl's feature where they've added some goofy captions (from The Daily Beast's Ana Marie Cox and Huffington Post's Jason Linkins) to some of the odder photos, like the one above: "Why yes, I'm very interested in your long distance plan." LOL. This is like the stuff we tried to sneak into my high school newspaper when the advisor wasn't looking.
