In Focus: The 2nd Inauguration of Barack Obama in Photos

Preparations have been under way for weeks for the 57th U.S. Presidential Inauguration, taking place today in Washington, D.C. Planners are expecting hundreds of thousands to attend the public swearing in of President Barack Obama for his second term, and more to attend the Inaugural Parade and dozens of related parties, balls, and concerts around the area. I’ll be posting photographic coverage of the events to this essay throughout the day, so check back later for more.
