It is always a challenge when you travel to a famous location and try and create a unique photograph. The Lincoln Memorial and Washington memorial is definitely those prominent locations where millions of people have photographed the national monuments.
I was delighted to have created this image encompassing two national monuments and what I feel is a captivating street photo scene.
I was standing in from of the Lincoln statue in this picture, looking out towards the Washington memorial. It was a beautiful day with an attractive wispy cloud cover. These two girls were doing what every tourist in the world has done. They took a photograph with the Washington monument in the background. But what I saw was a magical combination of great light (long dramatic shadows from the columns), the entire Washington Monument framed between the Lincoln memorial stone columns, and the two girls framed on the next column taking the picture. I love the balance of this scene!
