Raleigh NC Editorial photography - Lincoln Memorial

The other day I had a shoot up in Washington DC for a client, well almost DC in Fairfax. I was really bummed when I drove in and didn't even see the top of the Washington Monument. The shoot wrapped up and I made it to the hotel @ 11PM. Here I was in DC, almost and haven't seen any monuments. I got a wake up call at 6 AM, took the metro @ 10 stops and got off in Foggy Bottom. I walked down 23rd street to the Lincoln Memorial. Every time I've been to the Lincoln Memorial, there have been hundreds of tourist, but today was different. It was still early, I had the place to myself except for the janitor and occasional jogger. It was a very powerful thing to just stand in the memorial, by myself. I hope to take my kids up to DC before the start of the school year so they can experience all the monuments.
