Kongo took these pictures one evening last December during a business trip to Washington, DC. Above the base of the Washington Monument and the Capitol. The structure on the far right is the Library of Congress. Kongo once did a fellowship on Capitol Hill and has loved the city ever since. Advertisements
Last week Kongo visited the National Mall in Washington, DC and took these pictures of the Washington Monument, aka “The Stick” at night. A couple of lifetimes ago when Kongo worked at the Pentagon he used to do a run that left the Pentagon, went along the George Washington Parkway, over the Memorial Bridge, and up the Mall to go around the “stick” then back to the Pentagon. About 7 miles all told. All the monuments at night are beautiful, mostly empty, and inspiring. These photos were taken from the Lincoln Memorial. Travel safe. Have fun.
