Wikipedia Description: Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial is a proposed United States presidential memorial to be constructed for United States President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
On October 25, 1999, the United States Congress created the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission under Public Law 106-79. The Commission is in the planning stages of creating the memorial in Washington, D.C. In 2005, the Commission selected a preferred site across Independence Avenue from the National Air and Space Museum and north of the Department of Education. They are now seeking approval of that site from various government agencies. Public Law 107-117 (January 10, 2002) authorized the commission to establish the memorial on lands under the jurisdiction of the United States Department of the Interior. Once established the Eisenhower Memorial will fall under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service.
On November 8, 2005, the National Capital Memorial Advisory Commission approved the Eisenhower Memorial Commission's request that the Eisenhower Memorial be located across the street from the National Air and Space Museum just a few blocks from the United States Capitol.
On March 31, 2009, Frank Gehry was announced as the lead designer of the Eisenhower Memorial.
On March 25, 2010 the Eisenhower Memorial Commission unanimously selected the preferred design concept created by Frank O. Gehry. Once completed The Eisenhower Memorial will be the first presidential memorial of the 21st century, and become the seventh in U.S. history.

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.

2010 photos: Equipment this year: I mostly used the Fuji S100fs until the third one broke and I started sending them back for repairs. Then I used either the Fuji S200EHX or the Nikon D90 until I got the S100fs ones repaired. At the end of the year I bought a Nikon D5000 but I returned it pretty quickly.
Trips this year:
Civil War Trust conferences (Lexington, KY and Nashville, TN), and
my 5th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con trip (including Los Angeles).
My office at the main Commerce Department building closed in October and I was shifted out to the Bureau of the Census in Suitland Maryland. It's good to have a job of course but that killed being able to see basically any cultural events during the day. There's basically nothing of interest that you can see around the Census building.
Number of photos taken this year: about 395,000..
