Lincoln Memorial Looking Pretty

Posted by Katherine | January 24, 2009 – 4:15 pm

Since Abraham Lincoln’s “new birth of freedom” was the official theme of the inauguration, and since Obama looks to the former president from Illinois for insight, it seemed fitting to wrap up our inauguration posts with these two photographs of the Lincoln Memorial. They were taken by Bay-area TV “graphics guy” Hugh Grew, who was in DC to work on the “We Are One” concert. (We featured him previously here.)

First up: nighttime. With waiting bleachers and Lincoln shining out.

Hugh explains that the lustrous mist came from a rather pedestrian source: a generator in use for the upcoming concert.
