Postcard from Washington, DC: Memorial scenes

Returning to DC, scenes at the Lincoln Memorial. Overheard (one teenage boy, in awe, to another): "Oh man, this is where Martin Luther King said I Have a Dream!"

Nice to see teens in awe over social history.

Really nice captures Lulu.... the Lincoln Memorial is one of my favorite sites in DC! It's so wonderful to overhear such enthusiasm in a teen, thank you for sharing that. Great way to start the week :)

My favorite monument -- absolutely wonderful. Whenever I'm there, I enjoy sitting on the steps people watching -- and watching the air traffic.

Wonderful, Lulu! The jet (just by chance) passing by in the top photo is a lovely addition. Well planned :).
