Abigail Adams

Close up of the bronze sculpture of Abigail Adams (1744-1818) the wife of the second president of the United States, John Adams. A highly educated woman well in advance of her times. The sculpture is part of the Boston Women's Monument on Commonwealth Avenue.

I love the perspective on this photo. Scanning through your past photos, I must say you have a way with the camera. Very nice.

Intense! Loved the series, The Adams, that was on HBO or Showtime. She was an interesting woman.

I think she's crying because it was so hard for her to get her point across re: the value of women in the new country...

I absolutely love this shot!
