FDR Statue
Washington, DC

The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial is located between the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials on the south side of the Tidal Basin.  The memorial completed in 1997 is well hidden from view as you drive by on Ohio Drive so use caution if you are driving to the memorial.  I must say that this is the first time I have visited the memorial and I think it is one of the nicest in the city.

The FDR Memorial covers 7.5 acres and is constructed as four outdoor rooms one for each of his terms in office.  There are a variety of themes through the memorial waterfalls and granite abound.  The memorial is well visited and that is why the pano is somewhat incomplete.  There were always folks in front of the FRD statue but if you zoom in you can see FDR and the kids around the statue of Fala.  I’m going to return at night my favorite time to shoot less people and better light....more to follow.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
