Today I was photographing at the Capitol Stones in Rock Creek Park in Washington D.C. The stones are remnants of the renovation to the Capitol in 1958. For whatever reason these stones from the east facade they could not be re-used so they were deposited unceremoniously here. They are numbered and signed by the craftsmen that created them. While they have tremendous historical value to our nation they sit here in the woods with moss growing on them. It’s a disappointing testament to our own countries history.
