The monument however remains the world's tallest stone structure and the world's tallest obelisk, standing 554 feet 7 11/32 inches (169.046 m) tall.

I saw this tonight (09-10-2011) in Malibu while driving along PCH and I had to stop.

The Lincoln Memorial is an American memorial built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The architect was Henry Bacon, the sculptor of the main statue (Abraham Lincoln, 1920) was Daniel Chester French, and the painter of the interior murals was Jules Guerin. It is one of several monuments built to honor an American president.

 

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, The Gettysburg Address and his Second Inaugural Address. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech, delivered on August 28, 1963 during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

 

Like other monuments on the National Mall – including the nearby Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, and National World War II Memorial – the memorial is administered by the National Park Service under its National Mall and Memorial Parks group. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since October 15, 1966. It is open to the public 24 hours a day. In 2007, it was ranked seventh on the List of America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects.

This chapel commemorates the common sacrifices of the British and American peoples during the seccond world war.

The Sphere is a large metallic sculpture by German sculptor Fritz Koenig, currently displayed in Battery Park, that once stood in the middle of Austin Tobin Plaza, the area between the World Trade Center towers in Manhattan. After being recovered from the rubble of the Twin Towers after the September 11, 2001 attacks, its fate was initially uncertain and it was dismantled into its components. Although it remained structurally intact, it had been visibly damaged by debris from the airliners that were crashed into the buildings and the collapsing skyscrapers themselves.

 

Six months after the attacks, following a documentary film about the sculpture, it was relocated to Battery Park on a temporary basis—without any repairs—and formally rededicated with an eternal flame as a memorial to the victims of 9/11.

For Americans, Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who gave their lives in military service. Their ultimate sacrifice, across many generations, has kept our nation free,

Fountain building and the use of decorative statuary exploded in the 1920's after developer J.C. Nichols used them in the development of Country Club Plaza. He was a prominent developer of commercial and residential real estate in Kansas City. CCP was the first suburban shopping center in the United States and the largest master-planned community in the United States.

Many people will be aware that Dartmoor Prison was constructed in the early 1800s to house French prisoners of war from the Napoleonic Wars. But relatively few will be aware that it also housed thousands of American prisoners from the 1812-15 conflict (sometimes known as "the forgotten war") who were also held at Dartmoor after rioting on the prison ships at Plymouth. Some 218 American prisoners died here and the East Window, pictured, is a memorial to them.

Plymouth Harbour during a late night stroll. It is not very much but the MayFlower Memorial is very impressive.

I went out and sat in the middle of the markers for about an hour at the Little Rock Memorial Cemetery. The feeling of gratitude was overwhelming. All I can say is "Thank You".

I love how they look together. And yes, I'm ready for the Seiji x Sachiko backlash. Storywise, Grey's supposed to put the moves on Sachiko but I haven't had the chance to work on that story for ages.

The beautiful architecture from Oscar Niemeyer created this amazing shadow on the curved wall.

 

If you like architecture check out

Oscar Niemeyer's work. He was a great artist and I love his abstract buildings. This one is in the Latin America Memorial in Sao Paulo.

 

Thanks a lot for all the kind comments and faves on my stream, Flickr Friends! I've been so busy but I promise to catch up as soon as I can. Cheers =D
