City Series: Washington D.C: The Steps of Lincoln Memorial

I wanted to show you this picture I took from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. It was a gorgeous day and I went up there by myself to see what I could see. I rubbed elbows with boy scouts, families and tourists as we all took turns having our picture taken with Abe.

I rode the elevator down with an older gentleman from Italy. I don't speak Italian and he didn't speak English, but we chatted none the less with gestures, smiles and by showing off our digital pictures.

Little moments like that are why I love people so much. We weren't going to let a little thing like
language slow down our enthusiasm for the experience we had just had. That is delight.

I'm so glad you chatted with the Italian gentleman. My family thinks I'm nuts because I can have an extended conversation in almost any language without knowing a word of the language. This adds so much fun to my life - and hopefully the person I'm talking to as well.

Anne, My interpretation:
This was a powerful photograph! It's showing we are all here , all in God's image. He speaks our language!
Have a great day!
