Sitting on the steps of Lincoln's Memorial I saw a group of Amish religious arrive. The visitors, dressed in the style of past centuries, reminded me of the image of Lincoln himself, who despite being born in a Baptist home, never joined any Church. Discreetly I slip through the crowd and took a seat in front of them. They seem interested in the ex-president's words placed on the walls. It is when I raise my camera and leave them trapped in what is intended to be a space-time joke.
