Photos on Friday: Marine One lifting off from White House

One of the great things about the District is you never know what you might run into. There are things you see in D.C. you likely won't see anywhere else.  Such as the presidential motorcades shutting off roads. Large national protests. Or you might see Marine One zooming by over the National Mall.

Several years back (during the Bush administration) we were hanging out near Pershing Park waiting for friends to finish their White House tour and Marine One suddenly lifted up and appeared above us. That was a pretty cool moment.

When our friends finished the tour, they said the President had waved to the group as he headed out. On that trip, according to media reports I read later, he had been headed to Japan to the G-8 conference (this was in 2008).
