Senator Edward Kennedy funeral procession–Downtown Washington, DC


On Saturday, August 29, 2009, Senator Edward Kennedy’s funeral procession traveled slowly through downtown Washington on its way to Arlington National Cemetery. I had the opportunity to capture these images as it passed along Constitution Avenue near 14th Street. A sizeable crowd of people wanting to pay their respects had gathered in this area which is near the Washington Monument. A thunderstorm was threatening and the hour was growing late, but the crowd wanted patiently. They waved and politely clapped as the motorcade passed.
