The inside of the Oval Office
The Oval Office
(Presidend Obama's office in the White House)
The real office, not the one you see in the movies!
Resting on the bookshelf is a framed program from the 1963 March on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech.
The table behind Obama's desk is full of family photos - a wedding picture, shots of his girls as toddlers, a picture from the day he announced for president and more - photos that he says remind him "why I'm doing what I'm doing."

A big bowl of fresh apples on the coffee table, something of an Obama family tradition, has proved hugely popular with visitors, although the president still keeps M&Ms handy for kids.
Obama has set a less formal tone for the Oval Office from his first days as president.
When the White House released its first picture of him at work there, Obama was in shirt sleeves.
George W. Bush, by contrast, made it a point to be in coat and tie whenever he entered the Oval Office.
These pictures were taken just after Christmas 2009, hence the Christmas decoraions.
