Oh Canada!

No, this photograph was not taken in Canada. Hopefully, visits to America's northern neighbor will be in my future, but this photograph was actually taken of the Canadian Embassy and the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, DC. The Newseum is right next door to the Canadian Embassy, so from its observation deck, you can see both the embassy and the Capitol. Without the proper context and only seeing Canadian flags in this vista, viewers might assume that this image was taken in Ottawa instead of the District of Columbia. I love that we keep our Canadian friends so close to our government and definitely makes for a memorable photograph.
