  2. Ah…my man. Seriously good looking photo of this monument. Once, while visiting Ford’s Theatre museum, I walked over to a life size photograph of Lincoln and realized that if he had ever asked me to dance, I would have staring at his breast pocket on his suit! Yeah, I thought you should know!

    Wow. I like the way the light is shining on his face. Good choice on the time of day.

    …w1kkp, I had no idea Lincoln was THAT tall, cool piece of “useless info”

    Very nice! I love the angle and the lighting. This monument is so impressive in person and I think you captured that very well in this picture.

  6. Chaucee – I was there in late December, actually. I took this photo the day after Christmas.

    Pat – He was a tall sucker. Although I’m guessing you’re not? 🙂

    Stephanie – Thank you. 🙂

    Jewel – Not much of a story. I took it at night on the day after Christmas. It was SUPER crowded there. Because the light in there was so soft, I didn’t have a tripod, and I didn’t have any high-speed film with me (this was shot on 50 ASA film), I had to shoot this handheld at a really slow shutter speed – 1/15 sec. I really didn’t expect this to turn out. Glad you like it so much. 🙂

    Dragon – It’s definitely impressive – especially when no one’s around. When I took this, there were a TON of people in there.

    wow, handheld, no light — this picture is amazing. especially considering it’s film and not digital. i’ve only recently began taking pictures, and only in digital. can’t imagine how difficult doing this would be if it were film. kudos!

  10. Film can be a pain – but it hurts so good. lol. I haven’t shot much digital (I borrowed a friend’s DSLR for a short time), but I felt like I couldn’t be nearly as creative as with film. With film, I have to plan more and make things count.

  11. Beautiful tones in this one, from white to black and everything in between.

    I really like this photo! When I saw this in D.C. I was amazed and I like the way this picture in black and white adds something new.

    It looks like he’s about to get out of the chair.

    • lol. Yeah, like in the first “Night at the Museum” movie. 🙂

    This is a stunning photograph of the Lincoln Memorial from an angle one doesn’t always see, hence your view of it. Nicely done.

    • Yeah, most people go for front shots from further back. I wanted something more personal, I guess.

  18. Love the POV!
