Washington is a wonderful place to visit…Especially if you love museums, as I do!
The city is filled with some spectacular architecture…Formal and grandiose.
Naturally..It’s the capital city ! It can’t afford to look slovenly. (Despite the fact that at night I passed a collection of homeless folks all huddled together under one of those aforementioned grand buildings!)
And there are thousands everywhere. Everywhere.
This picture seems to convey the essence of man’s need to make grand power statements through buildings. The ancient classicism of the architectural style..The solid stone..The columns ascending and juxtaposed against the ever present sky. It’s just a snapshot..but if you think about it…it’s a coded statement.
