    most monuments found in dc are centered around a "national" event. this small one tucked away in a wooded area near the reflecting pool was erected for the citizens of dc who lost their lives in various wars:

    Awesome work Jon! The saturation in each of these is just perfect!!! I like each of them b/c they all have something different to offer...but right now the last one has me mesmorized (sp)!!!

    Sigh....

    I just love looking at your pictures... I always feel so relaxed and contented. :)
    I really love the picture of the steps. I'm not sure why.... maybe the streaks of color in the marble. The water one is great as well. Actually I could sit here all day saying why I like these pictures. Beautiful job.

    I'm with Aoide: I like the marble steps best of all these - and the water!
    And I can't help it: I just love those azalea bushes with their deeply saturated red blossoms. In life as well as in this photo.

    I like the 3rd one the best. Just to be the none conformist.
