Photos on Friday: District of Columbia WWI Memorial

This weeks Photos on Friday takes a look at the District of Columbia WWI Memorial. Perhaps a lesser-known monument on the National Mall, for years it languished behind heavy shrubbery and was in desperate need of restoration. Today the memorial has had an overhaul and looks wonderful. It is also a popular place for weddings. I'll do a more detailed post about this memorial in the upcoming weeks.

Take a look at the before and after -

The monument as it looks today. Notice how the trees and other shrubs have been cleared out or cut back. You can't see it as much in this image, but the monument itself has also been nicely cleaned.
