It’s been a nice fall in Washington. For the most part, temperatures have been mild and I wanted to share some photos from around town.
We also saw a gorgeous full moon in early November:
I’ve been making photographs at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial for more than twenty years. The memorial has helped the country heal after a bitter conflict. The memorial includes the names of over 58,000 servicemen and women who gave their lives in that war. I made this photograph on Thanksgiving morning (November 24th).
Abraham Lincoln was an American lawyer who served as the 16th president of the United States from 1861 until his assassination in 1865. Lincoln led the nation through the American Civil War and succeeded in preserving the Union, abolishing slavery, bolstering the federal government, and modernizing the U.S. economy. The first public monument to Abraham Lincoln, after his death, was a statue erected in front of what was then the District of Columbia City Hall in 1868, just three years after his assassination. The statue was sculpted by Lot Flannery. The building now houses the District of Columbia Court of Appeals which is the highest court of the District of Columbia.
