A note of thanks to all those who contributed to our Inauguration Flickr pool. Just eighteen days ago, we sent out a call for dope/avant-garde photographs chronicling this seminal/historic/generally rad moment in D.C. history. The pool swelled to a whopping 699 photographs, from which Darrow Montgomery somehow managed to extract the finest three…or four.

Winners, and details on the readers’ poll, below the jump.

THE READERS’ CHOICE AWARD: To participate, navigate to our Inauguration Photo Contest HQ and click through until you find your ABSOLUTE MOST FAVORITE PHOTOGRAPH EVER. Follow directions to vote. One vote per household. VOTING CLOSES AT 6 P.M. ON FEBRUARY 12!
