The Virginia Column

HDR,Monuments,Washington DC 11 May 2010 | 2 Comments

After a few minutes of wandering around the World War II Memorial on the National Mall I thought I should get a photo of the section for my home state. When I finally found it (I started searching the Memorial in the wrong direction, and made 4/5 of a full circle) I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Washington Monument fit directly into the center of the pillar. I’ve always been visually drawn to natural framing and I thought this added to the patriotic feel of the shot.

The Virginia section is on the “Atlantic” side of the Memorial, and let me tell you, that’s where I’d want to be as well. Not that there’s any particularly good place to be in a war, but based on my recent viewing of HBO’s The Pacific, I can state with great certainty that I’d have rather been fighting in Belgium than on Peleliu.
