Postcard from Washington, DC: Icons

The Washington Monument (the color change one-third up occurred after a 23-year halt in construction)...

The Internal Revenue Service (it's tax season) and moving Vietnam Memorial.

Goodbye DC

Bringing back wonderful memories of very hot days around Memorial Day 2002...

I long for the days when DC resonated with gravity and trust and great leadership......

Dos interesantes fotos del famoso Washington Monument, (me gusta mas la de la derecha) y muy impresionante el muro negro de Vietnam Memorial con la trágica lista de nombres que al menos permanecerán en dicho muro para siempre.
Un saludo, Ángel

Fabulous shots of the Washington Monument! Get home safely before the coming storm Lulu (and to think I naively thought spring was around the corner ;)...

Ah ha, bikes would be a great way to get around. Lovely photos of the WM, how come I didn't notice the colour change, it is pronounced.

The Vietname Memorial is so moving. Each time I'm there I see someone at the wall touching a loved one's name. I happen to the guy who devised the method used to place names on the wall -- very interesting. Glad you had a good visit.

Sounds like you really enjoyed yourself there!

Beautiful photos. I hope you got to the WWII Memorial. At night it is amazing!

Virginia said...

I was mistaken. It's the Korean War Memorial that I loved I think!

Thanks for sharing.

I'm glad this is not one of the obelisks taken from Egypt. When you visit the Temple of Karnak in Luxor, it's really sad to see just the places where many obelisks were supposed to be standing on.
