Abraham Lincoln Memorial

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 18 June 2009 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

There is a shortage of restrooms on the mall, so Susan and I walked to the lower level of the Lincoln memorial to use that one. We didn't take the time to go up the steps to view Lincoln more closely as the rest of our group was waiting for us to go to the Korean memorial. Tomorrow I'll show you a zoomed photo.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

It is such a huge structure. I saw on my weather bar on Florida that it was 93 degrees and you were having lightening. Best to stay indoors on your bicycle. We are praying for a good pathology report. ♥ I've had too much bad news already this week. Yours has to be good. ♥♥

@Marion: We had heavy storms Wednesday evening and some badly needed rain. Thursday morning it is 'only' 75° w/90% humidity (yikes). We did our walk and now I'm in for the day.
You're in my prayers, sweet friend! xx

Leena from Joensuu, Finland

Do you know this great photogrhapher and blogger and the man with plenty of more skills, Abraham Lincoln, who is now 75 years and a relative with the president.
Click HERE, he has many photoblogs really worth seeing!
I am with you tomorrow, Judy!

@Leena: Thanks, Leena, for the link to the 'other' Abraham Lincoln; I spent some time on his site.

Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

Yes it is better inside where it's less humid, the Doc will give you the Gold Star of recovery, you're too precious :)

The Lincoln Memorial reminds me of some greek coliseum. What a beauty.

@Lambspun: Yes, it's a beautiful memorial.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

I always wanted to sit on Abe's lap, when my parents used to take us there when we were kids!!! Your shots are really making me want to take a trip north!!!
Have fingers & toes crossed for you for tomorrow!!

@Susan: Lincoln has been my favorite president since grade school and it was fun when our granddaughter felt the same way about ten years ago. I'm hopeful for tomorrow too.

Super shot Judy!! My thoughts are with you for Friday!

@Linerberry: Thanks, Liners.....!

Barbara from Florida, United States

Your series has given me an insiders view since I have never been to see D.C. monuments. The Lincoln Memorial would be one I wouldn't miss, even if I had to use the restroom. I would have had them wait while I took images.
Looking forward to your zoomed shot.
I like the link Leena gave too.
Just remember that so many are behind you with prayers for your results tomorrow.

@Barbara: Oh, they waited plenty for me to get my shots. <grin>
I enjoyed the link Leena shared as well.

wow,you are cycling inside,that is a very good sign.I hope you will recover completely.I like the building,which i think will look even nicer without people in them,i just dont like crowds,I am quite anti-social nowadays,hee.

@tyan: My recumbent bike is great to have for times when the weather isn't conducive to walking, but it's boring. :(
I found the visitors to the memorials a national tribute to those who have died; it showed me how many still want to visit this fabulous place.

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

One of my favorite DC places. Nice capture Judy.

@Viewfinder: Thanks a lot.

Chris from South Jersey, United States

wonderful shot of this impressive sight - the clouds are very dramatic in the background.....

18 Jun 2009 8:28pm

@Chris: As you could tell, it was overcast and the light kept changing, but the clouds kept it from getting too hot.

Betty from New Jersey, United States

Looks like you had the same kind of weather there that MJ and I had last weekend. My prayers are with you tomorrow, Judy.

@Betty: Ours was overcast, but your photo today was glorious! I wish we'd gone up the steps for a closer shot!
