White House Photographer Pete Souza released this picture via Twitter today:

My eye caught the rather plain looking plaque on the back wall:


Considering it’s in the Roosevelt Room and hanging between portraits of the two Presidents, I took a shot in the dark and tweeted Mr. Souza. He replied almost instantly.


I love how the social networking helps us connect to our leaders and their key staffers across the globe. I’m also a little tickled by how two of the three POTUS’s to receive the Nobel Peace prize while in office are captured in one picture.

Thank you for replying, Mr. Souza.
