Seeing What's Coming

Here's another example of how a switch in perspective can change a photograph's story. The Lincoln in Bronze statue is located in a circle in front of the cottage at Soldiers' Home, allowing visitors to walk around and appreciate the statue from different perspectives. As I photographed the statue, I took photos from every angle. This is one of my favorite photos from my Soldiers' Home visit. It tells the story of Lincoln just arriving home on his horse, Old Bob, and looking expectantly off into the distance, perhaps his son greeting his arrival or the somber future ahead.
