It is hard to have iconic images without displaying works from Washington, D.C.
6a is a side view of the large theater in Arlington National Cemetery that
overlooks the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We went to a sunrise Easter
service there one year and were blown away! 6b was taken right at sunset
as was the Marine Corps War Memorial (6c). We were looking at the
reflection of the Washington Monument in the Wall at sunrise (6d) when we
noticed the man leaning on the wall and also being reflected. Very solemn
and beautiful. The long shadows on Lincoln's statue also at sunrise are
very compelling as well.
National Katyn Memorial (6f) is in Baltimore. It memorializes the
victims of the 1940 Katyn
massacre of Polish nationals carried out by Soviet forces. Baltimore's Polish-American community
was instrumental in having the monument built. It is the tallest statue in
The Irish Memorial in Philadelphia (6g) memorializes those who died in
Ireland during the potato famine of 1845. Colorado's capitol building in
Denver (6h) sits imposingly atop a hill overlooking a park.
National Infantry Museum (6i) at night is a sight to behold. Located
on the grounds of Ft. Benning in Columbus, Georgia, the museum is a must-see for
visitors to the area.
