U.S. Capitol Architectural Drawings from the East Side


Art of the Capitol, originally uploaded by sweetspot@f8.

Taken from the East Side, the photo above is just one of the many achitectural drawings you can find in the Capitol. I enjoy taking photos of this art masterpiece, lots of details, textures, it’s just magnificent.

Here is the same photo converted to Black and White. If you are going to ask me which of the two I prefer, I prefer the black and white. For me, sometimes colors can be distracting, with black and white I can easily see the details and texture of a photograph.

To give you more idea of what to photograph, here are two more photos from this side of the capitol:

The U.S. Capitol

The U.S. Capitol-2

The nearest metro station on this side of The Capitol is the Capitol South Metro station serviced by the Blue and Orange Line. Please refer to the map below.
