Wikipedia Description: George Mason Memorial
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The George Mason Memorial, located in East Potomac Park in Washington, D.C., commemorates the often neglected contributions of an important Founding Father of the United States. George Mason was the author of the Virginia Declaration of Rights and served as a delegate to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787. Perhaps Mason's greatest act was withholding his signature from the United States Constitution because it did not abolish the slave trade and lacked necessary protection for the individual from the Federal Government. He was sometimes known as "The Reluctant Statesman," which was also the title of a biography written about him by Robert A Rutland.
The memorial was authorized by Public Law 101-358 on August 10, 1990, to be developed by the Board of Regents of Gunston Hall. A site near the Thomas Jefferson Memorial was selected. The design features a 72 foot long stone wall with a one-third larger than life sized statue of a sitting Mason, his legs crossed, and a circular pool. The architect was Faye B. Harwell and the sculptor Wendy M. Ross. After an October 18, 2000 groundbreaking, it was dedicated on April 9, 2002. It is managed by National Mall and Memorial Parks.

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com

2002 photos: Image quality isn't going to be very good for the first half of this year because these are scans of prints.
Equipment this year: I took the plunge and bought my first digital camera. It was August 2002 and I bought an Epson PhotoPC 3100Z. While a nice camera, it had some quirks and bumping it would result in it being totally out of focus until you manually shut it down -- something which blurred almost every picture I took in New York City one day.
Trips this year: Two weeks out west, one week in New York, and one week down south.
This was the year I started the photo web site. It started to come together in August 2002, mostly as a way of allowing me to keep track of the pictures I was taking. It took awhile to add some basic bells and whistles (logging didn't get added until November) but it's been pretty much like it started out since then. Archaic but working, and free!
