Pete Souza, Chief Official White House Photographer and Director of the White House Photography Office, recently took questions from Flickr and Facebook users on what it is like to snap shots by the side of the President. One of the best ways to see through Pete's perspective and get a glimpse inside the White House is with the Photo of the Day. Throughout each month the Photo of the Day photographs are collected in a gallery that provides a unique look at events in and around the White House.
In the gallery from October -- which you can see full size in our photo section -- President Obama tours science exibits at the first White House Science Fair, First Lady Michelle Obama works in the garden with local students during the White House garden harvest, the White House is bathed in pink light in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and much more.
Make sure you don't miss out on the latest behind the scenes photos by signing up for the Daily Snapshot to receive the Photo of the Day throughout the week.
