First Lady Michelle Obama was spotted shopping at Target by an Associated Press photographer who told CBS News he was tipped off that she would be there.
AP photographer Charles Dharapak told CBS News he took the picture at the Target on Route 1 in Alexandria, Virginia.
The first lady's office confirmed that the picture showed Mrs. Obama, though it did not immediately respond when asked if it tipped off Dharapak.
"It is not uncommon for the First Lady to slip out to run an errand, eat at a local restaurant or otherwise enjoy the city outside the White House gates," said Kristina Schake, communications director for the First Lady.

I thought Target was non-union?
BS Photo op meant to show us how “just like us she is.
In other words they wanted to show how she slips out to be with the common folk so they tipped the photographer.
I’m curious why this is such a big deal?
Drudge has is posted as the main story....
I find this a bit hard to believe without them shutting down a three city block buffer zone and surrounding the place with SS agents.
So where is the security detail? I doubt this one.
It looks a little too prepared.
I’m told great colour photoes of that quality can’t just be snapped on the fly, but some prep work is necessary.
Notice there are no other customers shown.
Did Target open the store just for her?
What’s in her cart? Halloween candy?
How much did this campaign trip cost?
She even went as far on this photo prop as to hide the Secret Service.
I am sure she’ll find a Justin Beiber shirt to go with her $80,000 bracelet
If she’s auditioning for “People of Wal-mart” she needs some leopard-skin stretch pants, a wife-beater shirt over a regular bra, and she needs to BE AT WAL-MART!
She totally looks in her element in that picture.
You can’t fool me. Someone just photshopped a picture of Aunt Esther at a Target.
Is that an employment application sticking out of her purse?
As usual, her yes men told her she was well dressed.
Remember when Palin went to Wal-Mart to buy diapers for Trig? She was crucified by the media. Let’s see how mean they will be to Michell...Don’t hold your breath.
