Sailor man

Lone Sailor USNavy memorial WashDC

Loved this image when I shot it last week in WashDC. This is “The Lone Sailor” by Stanley Bleifeld, cast in 1987 (so relatively new). It’s off to the side of the circular plaza central to the United States Navy Memorial. The plaza has a sculpted (almost flat) view of the globe (water and not-water, with a mesh of lats and longs overlaid) centered on the continental USA. The Sailor is mounted near the Aleutian chain, “in”/above the Bering Sea (appropriately?).
