The White House posted hundreds of pictures on online photo-sharing service Flickr on Wednesday chronicling President Barack Obama's first 100 days in office.

The "official White House photostream" at flickr.com/photos/whitehouse features many previously unseen pictures of the president and his family at home but also on trips around the country and abroad.

It also includes candid and formal pictures of White House staffers, visitors to the presidential residence, and new First Puppy Bo.

Flickr recently signed an agreement with the US General Services Administration to allow federal agencies to use Flickr.

The is not the first to do so, however. The State Department has been using Flickr for months at flickr.com//statephotos.
