Bunnies, Tiaras & Putin: Obama’s 2014 In Photos

The White House

Official White House photographer Pete Souza this week released a 2014 review of President Barack Obama’s sixth year in office. The photos cover moments from the President donning a tiara for his photo op with a Girl Scout troop to a very intimate face-to-face encounter with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

There is also this.

All captions are from the White House (which also has many more photos).

“This photograph was from the annual White House Science Fair. It shows the President posing with Girl Scout Troop 2612 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I think the eight-year-old girls–Avery Dodson, Natalie Hurley, Miriam Schaffer, Claire Winton and Lucy Claire Sharp–are called ‘Brownies’. They had just shown the President their exhibit: a Lego flood proof bridge project. The fair celebrated the student winners of a broad range of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) competitions from across the country.”

“The President talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin after a lunch with other foreign leaders to commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy, France. I’m sure they were talking about a subject matter other than D-Day.”
