You are going to see a lot of photos of the Lincoln Memorial. I was there twice, once during the day where the cloudy weather made for wonderful even lighting and once at night where it was lit up as you’ve always seen it on tv.
The thing I found most interesting about the memorials in DC was how immensely moving I found them. I found myself standing in them feeling very contemplative. And as I comtemplated them I took pictures to try to capture what I was feeling at each. Real attempts at phtographic study. Hopefully it won’t be too boring, but it was interesting to me.
