Wikipedia Description: Freedom Park
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Freedom Park is an outdoor museum in Arlington, Virginia. It was founded in 1996 to celebrate the spirit of freedom and the struggle to preserve it. The Freedom Park is a joint-venture with the Newseum and Freedom Forum Journalists Memorial, both operated by the Freedom Forum.
Exhibits include stones from the Warsaw Ghetto, a headless statue of Vladimir Lenin (one of many that were beheaded when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991), and a bronze cast of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Birmingham jail-cell door. In addition, the park features a bronze casting of a boat used by Cuban refugees, as well as a casting of a South African ballot box from the apartheid era. The park includes pieces of the Berlin Wall — the largest display of the wall outside of Germany. A reproduction of "Freedom," the statue that caps the dome of the United States Capitol, is also on display.
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
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..
