The U.S. Capitol East Side
June 15, 2010
Here is another photo of the Capitol from the North end, this is actually the front side of the Capitol. Security on this side is very tight. You will see a number of Capitol Police officers walking around the area.
Tripod use is extremely prohibited in this side of the Capitol. You may be able to get away with a small tabletop tripod but if you need to use a full size tripod you need to get a permit. See the Filming and Photography In the District.
