Wishing everyone in the USA a restful President's Day, a national holiday in the States. President's Day was conceived as a Monday observance of what was once two holidays, Washington's and Lincoln's birthdays. Washington state was named for George Washington, the first President of the USA. His easy to recognized sharp profile adorns this sculpture installation in Freeway Park, adjacent to the Washington State Trade and Convention Center. The park and convention center are an amazing complex built right over a major interstate freeway, I-5, along which you can also see George's profile outlining the numbers of state highways on traffic signs.
It might interest you to know that one of our own City Daily Photo Blog family members is a cousin in President Abraham Lincoln's family tree, and bears the same name. Our Abraham Lincoln is a talented artist and photographer with a long history in publishing, rather than a politician, and you can see his Brookville, Illinois blog here. Happy Monday, everyone!Metroblogging Seattle's Tournament of Blogs voting booth for Seattle Daily Photo is here. It will be open until next Wednesday if you would care to vote.
