I heard the rain at 4 a.m.

"The best way to take a beautiful picture is to put yourself in front of something beautiful," is something Scott Kelby said at his Shoot Like a Pro workshop in DC in October.  So, at mid-morning today, despite heavy rain and low-40s temperatures, I drove to the Lincoln Memorial.


I was not alone.  

There were dozens of tourists. Some had arrived on tour buses, many were wearing raincoats.  

Most were posing with, or taking selfies of, Mr. Lincoln.
