ECF - Lincoln Edition

Here's a bit of eye candy that's very appropriate for this week.

I took this picture last May when Carole and I toured DC together. It's the left hand of the statue of President Lincoln from the Lincoln Memorial. I took pictures of the entire statue too but the hands speak to me in a weird way. Full of power and gravitas.

I believe Lincoln was left-handed. Appropriate that you chose to photograph the left hand - it would have been his strongest hand. The one that freed the southern slaves.
