Memorial Bridge Sculpture

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 10 October 2016 in Art & Design.

Sacrifice sculpture by Leo Friedlander, one of four statues on the corners of the Arlington Memorial Bridge that crosses the Potomac River from Washington, DC into Arlington National Cemetery. I took the original photo in 2013.

This close-up is a great way to go with this statue Elaine.... very striking! The light and shadows are intense. The sky seems to have influenced the overall colors a lot.... excellent! You are in my thoughts.... it's good to see you posting!! :)

@Ruthiebear: I am on oral antibiotics now. Still can't bear weight on the left leg but am getting around better with a walker. Really miss getting out and taking pictures.
