Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at email@example.com and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.
Specific picture descriptions: Photos above with "i" icons next to the bracketed sequence numbers (e.g. " ") are described as follows:
HOLODO_200219_28.JPG: Yep. Gum. I presume the Park Service has to clean up crap like this periodically.
HOLODO_200219_29.JPG: There are three mice. This one is at the far end of the piece.
The designer, Larysa Kurylas, had mentioned the mice in her presentation at the University of Maryland and I went back to find them and point them out to passers-by.
According to https://www.kyivpost.com/ukraine-politics/how-washington-holodomor-monument-won-the-race-against-time.html :
Larry Welker suggested inserting three small mice into the wheat field.
Kurylas said farmers and their families starving after their wheat had been confiscated would scan fields for signs of mice as a pointer to where some fallen wheat kernels might be found.
HOLODO_200314_02.JPG: The three mice in the memorial are located roughly where the arrows are pointing. The one circled is on the end of the memorial. The farthest one is in the second "3". The middle one is harder to find but it's on the left side of the front of piece.
HOLODO_200314_08.JPG: Mouse #1
HOLODO_200314_15.JPG: Mouse #2
HOLODO_200314_28.JPG: Mouse #3
HOLODO_200314_49.JPG: Larysa Kurylas, the memorial's designer, said the pattern on the back was reminiscent of traditional cloth patterns in the Ukraine as well as barbed wire.
Wikipedia Description: Holodomor Genocide Memorial
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Holodomor Memorial to Victims of the Ukrainian Famine-Genocide of 1932–1933 was opened in Washington, D.C., United States, on November 7, 2015. Congress approved creation of the Holodomor Memorial in 2006.
The memorial was built by the National Park Service and the Ukrainian government to honor the victims of the Ukrainian Famine-Genocide of 1932–33 and to educate the American public.
The memorial, designed by Larysa Kurylas, is one of three monuments in Washington, D.C., designed or co-designed by women—the others being the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial.
The memorial is located near the U.S. Capitol building at the intersection of North Capitol Street, Massachusetts Avenue, and F Street N.W. It is diagonal to the Smithsonian's National Postal Museum, about one block from Union Station.
