Photos from Q DC

I got to attend my first Q Conference this week, and what an experience it was: so many great ideas, so many people doing such awesome work, so many things to ponder. For now, here are some of the pics from the last couple days:

The President’s human side

A couple of favorites from the latest White House Flickr batch (both photos by Pete Souza):
