The Lincoln Memorial

    Newer Older

    I got this photo in a hurry. I bet I raised a few security alarms too because of my unusual behavior.

    I didn't have much time, so I had my wife drive nearby and park illegally on the curb for a few minutes. She wasn't a fan of that, but let's not talk about this right now. So, I jumped out of the car, hauled my tripod out of the trunk, and dashed across the green hill towards the memorial. I grabbed photos in a rushed way and dashed back to the car and sped away.

      I remember the days when we used to be able to walk around freely and enjoy our monuments, no matter what time of day it was. Great photo
