Monument Avenue 2 . . . . Jefferson Davis

The monuments are plentiful and I can't begin to showcase them all here, however will most likely put them in the book I do.

Memorial to Jefferson Davis . . President of the Confederacy
As you can see, they sure know how to build a monument.  I spent a good deal of time trying to get good photos and to capture the vastness and some close up detail of it all.  Showing some details from this massive monument to Jefferson Davis.

Firm in his beliefs
I felt that showcasing the firm foot of the statue was symbolic of how strongly he felt about his beliefs.

Had to use a telephoto lens to capture the top part of the statue.  In order to take the whole thing in one had to stand quite aways back, even using a 24 mm lens.
