Touring around Illinois, I had the opportunity to stop at Lincoln’s birth place and museum in Springfield. They had this nice statue of Lincoln across the street in a park. I looked at it from all angles and finally found this.

Yes, there is heavy use of vignetting, but the sky was a boring overcast and I thought it brought attention to the subject and gave it an old fashioned look.

The museum itself was interesting and did a great job showing both the history of the era and what the feelings of the nation were during that turbulent time. I’d like to go back and see it again.
