Description of Subject Matter: Kahlil Gibran Memorial
Rock Creek Park
Gibran was a Lebanese-born poet most famous for his 1923 book "The Prophet," a collection of 26 prose poems. The book grew in popularity through the 1960s counterculture movement. Because of its popularity, Gibran is reported to be the third-best-selling poet in world history, behind Shakespeare and Lao Tsu.

Architect: Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum
Sculptor: Gordon S. Kray
Kahlil Gibran was born in the village of Besharri near the biblical Cedars of Lebanon. In boyhood, he emigrated to Boston where he began his career as artist and author. His books, written in both Arabic and English, have been translated into numerous languages and are widely quoted. He died in New York City.
Kahlil Gibran's Legacy is the powerful simplicity of his words, which continue to inspire those who long for peace, search for love, and strive for justice.
Work is Love Made Visible
I love you my brother whoever you are
Whether you worship in
Your church, knell in your temple or pray in your mosque.
You and I
Are children of one faith
Fingers of the loving hand of one supreme being
A hand extended
Life without freedom is like a body without a soul and freedom without thought is confusion.
That which sings and contemplates in you is still dwelling within the bounds of that first moment which scattered the stars into space.
Do not the spirits who dwell in the ether envy man his pain?
We live only to discover beauty. All else is a form of waiting.
We extract your elements to make cannons and bombs but out of our elements you create lilies and roses. How patient you are Earth and how merciful!
When you love you should not say God is in my heart, but rather I am in the heart of God.

2009 photos: Equipment this year: I mostly used the Fuji S100fs. I've also got a Nikon D90 and a newer Fuji -- the S200EHX -- both of which are nice but I still prefer the flexibility of the Fuji.
Trips this year:
Niagara Falls, NY,
New York City,
Civil War Trust conferences in Gettysburg, PA and Springfield, IL, and
my 4th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con trip (including Los Angeles, Yosemite, Death Valley, Kings Canyon, Joshua Tree, etc).
Ego strokes: I had a picture of a Lincoln-Obama cupcake sculpture published in Civil War Times and WUSA-9, the local CBS affiliate, ran a quick piece on me. A picture that I took at the annual Abraham Lincoln Symposium appeared in the National Archives' "Prologue" magazine. I became a volunteer with the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
Number of photos taken this year: 417,000.
