After work today I decided to go on a 5 mile walk at The Mall. I had my camera with me so I took a few shots and thought I'd brake my long-time blog silence.
This is a shot of the National Mall. I took it while sitting on Lincoln's lap. OK, they wouldn't let me do that, even after I explained I'm American. But I did take it from the top of the stairs of the Lincoln Memorial.
See? Doesn't his lap look inviting? Hard to tell scale from this photo, but there's room for a dozen red blooded Americans up there!
This is me at the Vietnam and Korean War memorials. I'm the one in the blue shirt. For those that have never been there, seen here is about 1/50th of the Vietnam Memorial. The Korean War Memorial is cool because until up close it looks like an ungraved huge stone with smudges on it.
This is the WWII memorial with the Lincoln Memorial in the background. If you visit, don't miss this little "Killroy was here" gem hidden in a back crevice by an air vent.
Here's the Washington Monument and the Capitol.
Here's the White House from the Mall and from Pennsylvania Avenue.
I love the Washington DC license plates.
