10 years ago, I began an around-the-world (RTW) journey lasting 389 consecutive days, from 24 December 2011 to 15 January 2013 inclusive.
20 April 2012: Washington, DC.
Up from the U Street Metro station at the Vermont Avenue exit is the African American Civil War Memorial, located across the street from the African American Civil War Museum. The sculpture called “Spirit of Freedom” was created by artist Ed Hamilton in 1997. The memorial reminds us of over 200-thousand African-Americans who served during the U.S. Civil War; its conclusion led to the liberation of over 4 million African-American slaves.
I made the image above on 20 Apr 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/500-sec, f/5.6, ISO100, and 23mm focal length (37mm full-frame equivalent). My thanks to SK for making possible my visit to Washington, DC. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-lVR.
