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.

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.

--------------------------

El Monumento a Lincoln (Lincoln Memorial en inglés), situado en uno de los extremos horizontales del National Mall de Washington DC, es un monumento conmemorativo creado para honrar la memoria del presidente Abraham Lincoln.

La parte principal del monumento es la escultura de Lincoln sentado hecha por Daniel Chester French. French estudió muchas de las fotos que Mathew Brady hizo a Lincoln, y mostró al presidente de forma pensativa, mirando al este hacia la Piscina Reflectante y al Monumento a Washington. Una de sus manos está cerrada, mientras que la otra está abierta. Debajo de ellas, las fasces romanas, símbolos de la autoridad de la República, están esculpidas en el relieve del asiento. La estatua se levanta a 6 metros de altura y tiene 6 metros de anchura. Fue moldeada por los hermanos Piccirilli de Nueva York en su estudio del Bronx a partir de 28 bloques de mármol. La sala principal está flanqueada por otras dos salas. En una, el Discurso de Gettysburg está grabado en la pared sur, y en la otra, el segundo discurso innaugural de Lincoln está inscrito en la pared norte. Por encima de estos discursos hay una serie de murales pintados por Jules Guérin y muestran un ángel, que representa la verdad, liberando a un esclavo (en la pared sur, encima del Discurso de Gettysburg), y la unidad del Norte y el Sur (encima del segundo discurso inaugural). En la pared detrás de la estatua, tras la cabeza, se encuentra esta dedicatoria:

  

IN THIS TEMPLE

AS IN THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE

FOR WHOM HE SAVED THE UNION

THE MEMORY OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN

IS ENSHRINED FOREVER

 

EN ESTE TEMPLO,

COMO EN LOS CORAZONES DE LA GENTE

POR LA QUE SALVÓ LA UNIÓN,

SE CONSAGRA PARA SIEMPRE

LA MEMORIA DE ABRAHAM LINCOLN

Reflection in a glass building of the London St.Pauls cathedral, taking advantage of a rare blue sky ;-]

 

St Paul's Cathedral is the Anglican cathedral on Ludgate Hill, in the City of London, and the seat of the # Bishop of London. The present building dates from the 17th century and is generally reckoned to be London's fifth St Paul's Cathedral, although the number is higher if every major medieval reconstruction is counted as a new cathedral. The cathedral sits on the highest point of the City of London, which originated as a Roman trading post situated on the River Thames. The cathedral is one of London's most visited sights.

 

The St Paul’s Cathedral Arts Project is an ongoing programme which seeks to explore the encounter between art and faith. Recent projects have included installations by Antony Gormley, Rebecca Horn, Yoko Ono and Martin Firrell.

 

In March 2010, Flare II, a sculpture by Antony Gormley, was installed in the dramatic setting of the Geometric Staircase.

 

In 2007, Dean and Chapter commissioned public artist Martin Firrell to create a major public artwork to mark the 300th anniversary of the topping-out of Wren's building. The Question Mark Inside consisted of digital text projections to the cathedral dome, West Front and inside onto the Whispering Gallery. The text was based on blog contributions by the general public as well as interviews conducted by the artist and the artist's own views. The project presented a stream of possible answers to the question: 'what makes life meaningful and purposeful, and what does St Paul's mean in that contemporary context?' The Question Mark Inside opened on 8 November 2008 and ran for eight nights.

 

In 2009, St Paul's Cathedral commissioned Internationally acclaimed artist Bill Viola has been commissioned to create two altarpieces for permanent display in St Paul’s Cathedral. The project commenced production in mid 2009 with completion in early 2011. Bill Viola has been commissioned to create two altarpieces on the themes of Mary and Martyrs. These two multi-screen video installations will be permanently located at the end of the Quire aisles, flanking the High Altar of the Cathedral and the American Memorial Chapel where US servicemen and women who gave their lives in the Second World War are commemorated. Each work will employ an arrangement of multiple plasma screen panels configured in a manner similar to historic altarpieces.

 

In 2007, the World Monuments Fund and American Express awarded St Paul's a grant as part of their Sustainable Tourism initiative. The project will open up rarely seen areas, relieve crowding in the nave - which suffers heavily from foot traffic and fluctuations in humidity - and fund a new Exploration Centre in the crypt. This centre will provide insight into a variety of topics relating to the cathedral, including architecture, history, science, music, and, of course, religion. A lapidarium of recovered medieval stones and the room containing Wren's "Great Model" (currently only seen by appointment) will also be opened to the public.

 

The nearest London Underground station is St. Paul's.

 

圣保罗座堂(英语:St Paul's Cathedral;另譯為圣保罗大教堂),是英国圣公会伦敦教区的主教座堂,坐落于英国伦敦市,巴洛克风格建筑的代表,以其壮观的圆形屋顶而闻名。 现存建筑建于17世纪 。

წმინდა პავლეს საკათედრო ტაძარი (St Paul's Cathedral) მდებარეობს ქალაქ ლონდონში, ინგლისი, და ლონდონის ეპისკოპოსის საბრძანებელია. ამჟამინდელი შენობა მე-17 საუკუნით თარიღდება და ზოგადად ლონდონის მეხუთე წმინდა პავლეს ტაძრად ითვლება, თუმცა ეს რიცხვი უფრო დიდია თუ ყოველი დიდი სარეკონსტრუქციო სამუშაო ჩაითვლება როგორც ახალი საკათედრო ტაძარი. კათედრალი ლონდონის ერთ-ერთი ყველაზე პოპულარული ღირშესანიშნაობაა.

Each summer in Japan, citizens release floating paper lanterns into local rivers and lakes. The lanterns are decorated with special names and symbols and dedicated to late loved ones.

On this American Memorial Day, 2016, remembering loved ones who've gone on before. Although the holiday's traditional meaning is to honor those who've died in service to our country, it has, also, become more generalized as a time to remember all of our relatives who've passed away. I remember hearing from my parents that, as they were growing up, it was common practice for families to go to the cemeteries on that day (then called "Decoration Day"), to weed & put flowers on the graves of their loved ones. Often, a family picnic or time of worship might be included. In more recent times, family members are being cremated & we are scattered across the country, making it difficult to continue these traditions. I am thankful to be able to say that no one in the recent generations of my family has been lost to war, although my dad served in World War II & my former husband in peacetime. Instead of journeying to a cemetery, I hold my loved ones in my heart, offering these Forget-Me-Nots as a token of my enduring love & respect!

I'll note first off that this is from last year. The cherry blossoms aren't quite so nice yet. I'm starting to wonder what this year's blossoms will look like. The weather roller coaster we've been on can hardly help the growing process. This is one of my favorite places to see cherry blossoms away from the Tidal Basin. Visitors will rarely pass by this area.

Yup, I finally have some time to process those and I'll be alternating between them and my most recent non-HDR shots. Oh, and I'm still accepting theme suggestions for my next posts! :-)
