A few of our readers caught the inauguration events with their cameras and we’re sharing some of those images below after the break. Affairs ran smoothly and there was no Purple Tunnel of Doom so the running of the event got high marks in our book. We also really liked the Washington Post’s 1 billion pixel high resolution image of the inauguration. If you were in the crowd, you might be able to pick yourself out!
