The FDR memorial is so different from the rest of the memorials in DC. Instead of a big hunk of building, which can be very pretty, they opted for something that is a little more representative of who he was as President. From start to finish it is a lengthy passage that flows into sections which represent his four terms in office.
In each section there are sculptures, quotations, and a form of flowing water to represent the era. These photos are from the first term during the great depression.
People always stand near these men, like they are in line with them, so they can get their photos taken. I always want to ask them if they realize how stupid they look laughing and smiling next to men who are hungry and poor. I am all for getting your photo taken in different places, but not when it is disrespectful. Don't get me started on what I saw at Auschwitz...I am getting angry just thinking about it.
I had they day off today, so I took lots of new photos, including these. After a few months of hiding it, I am ready to share my flickr site with you. I have been tweaking it for some time, but changes are still being made. I have sooo many more photos to add. What you will see here are my public photos, I also have private ones for friends and family. I am not hiding anything, just photos of my peeps that they probably don't want sprawled all over the internet. So if you are one of my peeps and you want in, just let me know. You can get there by clicking on the link, or the photos themselves.
