Pitting himself as the man to challenge Washington's political elite, Barack Obama has always been about change.Now America's president elect is putting his money where his mouth is - by using the popular online photograph website Flickr.
John McCain give his concession speech on television during election night
Down time: Perhaps conserving his energy for his acceptance speech,
Mr Obama leans his head back with his feet up on the table next to wife Michelle
walk out to make his acceptance speech in Chicago's Grant Park
Mr Obama keeps his eyes glued to the television as he talks
on the phone surrounded by his equally intent family
Those viewing the photos are able to leave comments, with most expressing their joy at Mr Obama's win.
Flickr - which can be used and viewed by anyone, anywhere, anytime - is nothing more than a digital photo album often used by family and friends to share snapshots.
That Mr Obama would choose it as a method of sharing his historic night with the world, rather than more traditional photojournalism outlets such as Life or Time magazines, may be indicative of things to come.
