Smithsonian Institution Building | Washington DC
More fondly known simply as "The Castle," the Smithsonian Institution Building is easily recognized on The Mall. In full bloom here is the familiar Smithsonian logo, watched over by a bronze statue of James Smithson, founder of the Smithsonian Museum.
This was shot pretty early in the morning while there were still some clouds around. A few short hours later, there wasn't a cloud to be seen- just bright, blue skies...not good photography conditions, but I suspect that helped me pay attention to my wife and our trip a little better :-)
