Looking east at construction on Arlington Memorial Bridge over the Potomac River in Washington, D.C., in the United States. Note the statue on the partially-constructed pedestal just to the right of the abutments (bottom center).

    I love everything you do and appreciate your work. BTW I lived on the 12th floor of the Cairo in 1979-80 and still live 2 blocks off the circle. Thanks!
