Two Things Challenge: Night / Light
This week's Two Things Challenge offered two options: Day / Time or Night / Light. Those who participated had a choice of doing either or both. I chose both.
One of my favorite monuments at night is the Lincoln Memorial, as I'm sure you've guessed by now. I took this picture the other night when I was out and about while everyone else was inside watching the Super Bowl. (Note to fellow photographers: In the U.S., Super Bowl Sunday is the best time to go out and take pictures. There's no traffic and very few people to get in the way of some good photos.)
I've included thumbnails of two other photos I considered for this challenge. To see more detail, click on each picture for a larger image. The first is also the Lincoln Memorial. The difference in this version is lighting exposure, which is a bit brighter and includes the inscription over Daniel Chester French's sculpture of Lincoln.
The second photo is one I'll feature later in the week with information. It's of the George Washington Masonic National Memorial, which I visited on Friday. I ventured over at 12:00 on Friday and stayed until 4:00, then met my sister for dinner. Afterward, we went back to take pictures of the Masonic Temple at night.
And now, I promise, I won't post anymore pictures of the Lincoln Memorial for a while!
