This shot of Lincoln was taken on August 1, 2013.

On July 26th, 2013, the Lincoln Memorial was vandalized by a woman who threw green paint at the base of the 120 ton statue. This is the first time the statue had been vandalized since it’s dedication 92 years ago, in 1922.

At the time this image was taken, the paint was still visible and the base of the statue was surrounded by scaffolding, causing a bit of an issue in composing shots of the statue and the rest of the memorial. It was kind of an eye-sore.
