At the End of Pennsylvania Avenue NW

We are so focused on the famous residence located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW that we forget there is another important building at the end of this street, the United States Capitol building. Yesterday, I visited another Pennsylvania Avenue NW address, the Newseum -- a fantastic interactive museum of news with behind-the-scenes views of how and why news is made. I took this photo of the U.S. Capitol at the end of the street from their amazing observation deck. It is such a majestic, iconic structure and it actually does sit on a hill overlooking Pennsylvania Avenue NW and the National Mall. One of these days, I'm going to need to arrange a tour of the building. I would love to see and photograph its famous rotunda.
