The country's first public memorial for the Polish soldiers killed by Soviet secret police during World War II in the Katyn Forest massacre. This centerpiece of Exchange Place in Jersey City, NJ, stands along the Hudson River waterfront.
The 17-foot statue of a Polish soldier, his hands tied behind him and his back pierced by a bayonet, is mounted on a granite base.

Many bloggers do a thing called "Thirteen Thursday" where they post a list of 13 things about themselves or about whatever strikes them. I got the idea to do it with photos, since I am usually always shooting and many of my photos just don't get photoblogged.
This last weekend, I went upstate to celebrate the Orthodox Easter with some good friends. Here, we see the barrel that collected rain water from the party tent. The rain poured. Our spirits did not dampen, however, and all had a great time, as usual.
FYI: Around noon on Sunday, when I first saw the barrel, the water reached the lower ridge. By late afternoon, most of the rain had stopped. I took the photo Monday morning. You guessed it--I was too busy eating until then.
