You can zoom in with amazing detail. I'd really love to get a lens like that for my camera.
Of particular note:
- The curvature of the earth comes in to play before you can see an end to the sea of people. And I think it is absolutely hilarious that someone actually wore a Waldo hat to this event. Can you see them?
- The secret service agents camped out on roof tops. I count at least 16. Although I can't tell if they are all secret service agents or crazies that are trying to get a good glimpse of the President.
- The little boy on his father's shoulders wearing a bright orange hat. You can actually see him before you even begin to zoom in. Since that hat would be visible from outer space, good choice Dad on outfit selection!! If I took my children to an event with that many people, I'd dress them entirely in that same exact color. And then, I'd strap a flashing beacon to their heads.
- Even within the nice seats where people were provided blue lap blankets, I definitely see more than one person who would have greatly benefited from one of my hand knit fuzzy scarves. And since I have continued to neglect this...
