Photographer's Note

The Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC is an incredible piece of architecture and interior design in a beautiful location, between the Washington Monument about a half mile north and Arlington National Cemetery about a half mile south, across the Potomac. It's one of the can't-miss attractions should you visit Washington.

It was built in the 1920s in the exterior form of a Greek Temple. In addition to the statue, the interior contains carved inscriptions of two of Lincoln's most famous speeches, the Gettysburg address and his second inaugural --- each short enough to be on a wall and readable in a couple of minutes, yet elegant, clear, and meaningful.
