Who wants ice cream

“Who wants ice cream” President Barack Obama asked and from the press pool behind him one of the still photographers sheepishly replied “I do”.  President Obama turned to the dozen or so photographers and asked what flavor.  After a long pause filled with the sounds of camera shutters the red faced photographer responed, “We’ll catch you next time Mr. President.”

President Obama, his wife Michelle and daughter Sasha were in Panama City Beach on a short Florida panhandle vacation in August and I was covering for Getty Images.

Images were imported into my laptop on the boat, edited, prepared and transmitted to New York while I was photographing the Obamas enjoying their boat ride.  Talk about multitasking on land or sea
