US Capitol, east side

Unable to do much outside due to the brutal winter temperatures, we decided to yet again take a tour of the US Capitol building in Washington, D.C.

This is the east side of the Capitol, less famous than the often-photographed front of the building but across the street from the Supreme Court and Library of Congress. Itís also where the visitors center is located. It would have been nice without the traffic cones, but thatís just the way things are these days.

It has the appropriate bleak ominous ambiance that goes so well with what it represents these days. Excellent shot though. ~V~
