Keeping track of the construction and other obstructions to photography and tourism in Washington and the Mall requires scouting multiple trips and much idle gossip.  There are obscure laws which make photography difficult.  It took fifteen years before I was able to make these images of the Korea Memorial with the sculptor's permission which he would only discuss after he won a lawsuit with the Post Office.   In the case of the WWII Memorial, the  crane that I used to make the photograph was on site for six months before I was able to ask for the ride which enabled me to make some unique images.  

The DC PHOTO BOOK has ten pages devoted to Korea, ten pages devoted to Vietnam, four pages to the Women's Memorial at Arlington and another ten to the Cemetery.  It's particularly valuable this year as Korea is under construction and is a mess.
