This is the front of the U.S. Capitol building, though you can't really tell that because of the backlighting. Not only that, but there's a big, ugly, 10' high security wall around the perimeter while they're finishing construction on a multi-bajillion dollar underground visitor's center (there will be no returning monies on this project), so this is a nice way to show you the Capitol without showing all the crappy security walls.
I'm not going to give a lot of information about the Capitol in this entry, because I want better pictures to go with the information. Currently, I'm on Blossom Watch 2008 and as soon as the cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin pop, I'll be heading downtown to take photos. When I do, I'll also shoot better photos of the Capitol and provide interesting facts and figures then.
