The King Memorial

Washington, DC

The King National Memorial dedication was scheduled for the weekend of August 26-28, the anniversary of the 1963 march on Washington, DC, in which Dr. King delivered a speech titled "I Have A Dream".   Hurricane Irene scuttled plans to officially open the 7 acre monument on the Tidal Basin in Washington, but the site was open to any intrepid visitor bold enough to ignore very severe weather warnings.  Few took this opportunity, and it was nice to capture some clear and un-obstructed images.  I want to return on a different day with the crowds.
