Lone Sailor Statue, Washington D.C.

Our Bloghop Starts Here: Torquere Press

This is a photo I took, many years ago, of the Lone Sailor Statue in the Navy Memorial, Washington D.C. It is slightly larger than life, and you can see from the trees in the background that it was winter-time, or close to, but I don't remember it being a particularly cold day.

There is something about the statue that is haunting, and captures the imagination.  The artist did an amazing job catching that moment of anticipation, and of movement of form, even in a frozen moment.

My upcoming Charity Sip, Gray and Burnished Granite Seas, incorporates this location, and this statue.  Only two more days until the release!


  1. That's a great photograph, Tray, and I love your description of the statue. You have me intrigued as to your story.

    1. Thank you. :) The lighting was right for a very good photo that day.

      I'm eager to have all the stories released tomorrow!
