"Retrospective" Waterfall - FDR Memorial

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 11 June 2010 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

One of the five main water areas of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, DC. This waterfall is described to be a conglomerate of all the waterfalls located in this memorial park representing a retrospective of Roosevelt's presidency.

It is said that water is a prominant feature throughout the Roosevelt memorial because Roosevelt found so much relief from the ailments of polio through relaxing and swimming in water. It was through Roosevelt's efforts that a young doctor named Jonas Salk became instrumental in developing a vaccine that would virtually eliminate the disease poliomyelitis.

Great HDR job Steven - I felt terrible when we were there it was just packed and I could not get anything close to a different picture - it was at the end of the afternoon a few years ago. Really nice perspective here.

I guess maybe I'm not recognizing the significants of the falls here.. but the 'rock' formation reminds me of the rock enclosures at the Brookfield Zoo. Now.. I like the zoo so that's not a bad thing!
