Washington Monument, Washington, D.C.

Pictures and text by Mark R. Hatlie

These pictures were taken on June 19, 2006 on the Washington Mall. This monument cannot be adequately captured on film, at least not on a small screen. It is much, much bigger than it looks on the photographs.

On this one, the change in color about a third of the way up is visible. That marks the spot where constrution was interrupted for several decades in the 19th century.
When I took this shot, I was standing right next to a woman trying to do the same thing. I wonder whose shot turned out better?
