ICONIC IMAGES
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.

The 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 Baltimore.  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.

Finally, the 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.
