DC - A Bird's Eye View
Well, perhaps not a bird's eye view but not something normally seen. This was taken on Saturday the 14th and I'm at the top of a hotel just south of the Potomac River looking over the 14th St bridge. The bridge is actually several bridges all clustered around the 14th St entrance into DC, hence, the collective name, "14th St Bridge." The shot was taken about an hour before sunset; lots of cars headed into town, perhaps to see the cherry blossoms in bloom since Saturday was going to be the last day before a period of colder weather and heavy rain. From the left side of the photo, the landmarks are, Washington Memorial, National Cathedral (way in the back sticking up high on the horizon), the old Post Office Pavilion (now a hotel), the Jefferson Memorial (the white dome at the far end of the 14th St Bridge), and the Capitol Building on the far right. Cool city.
