A Romenesko reader inquired about the “extra hand” that appears in Alex Garcia‘s photo of the president and First Lady stepping off the plane. Questions are raised on the Tribune’s site, too. “Was this image Photoshopped?” asks a commenter. “Whose hand is Obama holding? You can see Michelle’s hand free behind his …” I asked Garcia about his photo. He told me via Twitter:
Michelle’s mother, a much smaller woman, was right behind her. …if u want a contact sheet of the images to cool down the forming mob, lemme know.
UPDATE: Garcia writes about the photo on his blog.
