Lincoln Seat

We made our way to our nation’s capitol last week. And I knew just what I wanted to photograph. Or maybe I should say “who I wanted to photograph.”

Abraham Lincoln has always fascinated me. Alternately venerated Me at the Lincoln Memorial300px
and vilified, endlessly biographed, devout, ordinary, and heroic by turns. And always a big draw at his place before the reflecting pool in Washington. As we made our way toward this modern-day temple, I had one special shot in mind: to frame the statue between two of the pillars  that surround his throne.
