Iwo Jima Memorial
With all of the images on TV these days of Washington D.C. I figured I’d share a few of my own from this past summer.
Today’s photograph is from inside the taxi cab that took us from our hotel in Virginia to D.C. I actually have several pictures of the Iwo Jima Memorial (Marine Corps War Memorial) that are much better than this, but I like this one for the no left turn sign. I also like this picture because it shows how huge this monument is. I always imagined it as being life size since pictures usually show only the monument with no frame of reference. The figures aren’t six feet in height though. They are more than 5 times larger than life as you can see by comparing them to the two people on the right of the base.
