In the shadow of the Capitol
28-MAY-2017

In the shadow of the Capitol

Sunday was the Rolling Thunder parade, which takes place every Memorial Day weekend. Thousands of motorcyclists from around the country ride in the nationís capital, continuing their 30-year tradition to make sure that the nationís fallen havenít been forgotten.

I have other pictures with the statue on the dome not cut off at the head, but I liked this one better because of the riders (not because of the way the background turned out ;-)).
