In Washington, D.C., one of my favourite memorials is the one dedicated to Thomas Jefferson.  On a recent visit, I attempted to capture a different perspective of the iconic structure.  


Exterior marble columns

The 6-metre bronze statue of Jefferson stands in the center and until you actually enter the memorial, appears as a silhouette.


From his position on the west bank of the tidal basin, Thomas Jefferson gazes east toward the mall – capturing views of both the White House and the Washington Monument.
