World War II Memorial in Washington, DC

This was my favorite

These beautiful status were donated by the Italian Government sometime after the war's end for our country's bravery and valor.

Washington DC Civil War Memorial And a Few Protesters

    Hi folks,
this past weekend, I spent three days wondering the streets of our nation's capital, Washington, DC.
Fortunately, I was able to find a bicycle and I could cover vast amounts of the city's great monuments and sights. It will take a few weeks for me to fully cover(blog) what I photographed while I was there, so I first wanted to pay tribute to the war memorials in the Capital Plaza area. First off however, what is DC without a little politics. So I put in two simple photos of the Occupy Wall Street encampment. I met a few of the folks in the camp and they were very nice, intelligent and informing to why they were there.
   The South Koreans had a little demonstration in front of the Capital that I felt was worthy as they told me 'they' have themselves a real jerk for President and were in DC to raise awareness to this. And I put in a few images in a loud shout out to a very special warrior, Mr. Howard 'Cowboy' Wooldridge, who for over two decades had been fighting against marijuana prohibition in our country as a retired police officer.
Here is a link to his website:

Actually, I think the camp gave a little color to a sort of drab image.

The Koreans had a little protest going on which they were producing for their media

The Civil war was the first monument that I will post as I could not find anything on the Revolutionary War. Tomorrow, I will post my images of the Korean War, Vietnam and World War 2. Until then chao!
