Well, I wanted to do this justice, and I don't know that I did. I think that when I someday return, I will try to be early morning and I will carry some ND filters. I just can't get away from black and white lately, it seems to be the way to play with and fix what I don't like. The truth is that the light is always so harsh in the middle of the day and this gives me more options for the feel of the picture.
This was a profoundly peaceful and touching experience for me to visit here, probably the most personally important part of my visit to the capitol.
Thanks for looking.
