First Time at the WHITE HOUSE

The color was washed out in this image. So I went to monochrome and tweaked highlights.

This was my first time to go to the White House. Snow covered the ground that day. — Age: 28. Feb. 1979.  As I recall it was a Sunday afternoon. President Carter was not on the grounds that day. I remember going into the Press Room (which was nothing like it is today, with the movie theatre style seating).   I  picked up a phone on the wall and called my grandMother in east texas. When I told her where her grandson was calling from she was of course beside herself.  I went back many times after this….but some years later when I was asked if I wanted a permanent  White House assignment , I declined.  It may be the White House, but for a photographer, it’s mostly “talking heads”.  Not my style.
