My photos feature the statue of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The incredible sculpture, called "The Stone of Hope," is located in The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in West Potomac Park, in Washington, D.C. (refer to map below)

The memorial is a tribute to the slain civil rights leader and stands near where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech.

The photographs were taken when my family visited Washington DC during Spring Break when the unforgettable Winter Storm Stella hit back in 2017.

This is my entry to the weekly #Photo52 contest hosted by @photo52 as well as initiated and run by the incredible @wwwiebe.

The theme this week is "White."

a nice quote. seems a lot of good visioners knew it and tried to put it, in a different ways. one of my fave quotes by Russian writer Victor Pelevin:

If you will find yourself in the dark and will see at least the faintest ray of light, you should head there, instead of speculating whether it makes sense to it isnt. Maybe that really doesn't make sense. But just sitting in the dark does not make sense anyway.

ps. glad to see your entry to this challenge, and looking forward to the next prompts :=)

My pleasure and sorry I missed the first two!
I'm trying to figure a good entry for week 3 @wwwiebe

Wow! What wisdom behind the quote of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr! Thank you for sharing the quote with us, my friend @ninahaskin.

The sculptured statue is a wonderful work of art! Even the brow lines and the crease at the elbow are sculptured in details! Hahaha! 😂

Have a beautiful day ahead my dear.
