The memorials in DC are some of my favorite architectural subjects to photograph. I almost fell off the back to the Lincoln Memorial while composing this shot. If you walk around to the back side there are very steep steps. I was crouching down while slowly inching backwards to compose the shot properly. All of a sudden I couldn’t feel the ground under my foot. I immediately stood up and looked behind me to see at least a 10-15 foot drop with multiple marble steps between me and the ground. Dodged a bullet that time!
