I took this photograph, Night Scaffolding, last night at the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial. Even though it was a Sunday night and it was 9:30PM, there were still lots of tourists walking around in the area!
With it being summer the area on the National Mall is normally filled with people jogging, walking, biking, or playing sports in the afternoon – at least the areas just in front of the museums and art galleries. But if you just cross the street you’ll find a nice sea of green to capture the scaffolding at sunset.
The scaffolding is fully erected on the Washington Monument now to repair the damage from the VA earthquake that happened in August of 2011.
