New White House Photos Of Obama At Work And Play

(White House/Pete Souza)
The White House has released a new set of photos by resident shutterbug Pete Souza that show President Barack Obama conferring with top aides in the Oval Office, hosting astronauts and dignitaries, and horsing around with Bo on the South Lawn.

Then there's this odd photo of the president letting the child of a White House staff member pet him on the head. Perhaps spending all that time with the new puppy is starting to rub off on him?

The photos are available to download and see at the White House's official photostream on flickr.
