To take us lands away." Emily Dickinson
Wow the architecture is not only stunning but very interesting. Thanks for sharing it. Seems as no one builds that way anymore, like there is no time, or money, or interest (profit).
You do get around!
Great pictures. Visiting is on my bucket list and now I really want to go.
What a gorgeous building … and my favorite is probably the oddly named Crypt. There aren't dead senators there I hope!
I love Washington! Beautiful pics!
I MUST get to Washington, AND the USA, one day... Thanks for posting!Mines up as well at AussiePomm - Mirror Mirror on the wall!!!!Have a great day!!

Amazing details. Thanks for the pictures.

beautiful architecture and the ceiling is amazing.
Hey, I'm your newest follower! Found you through the blog hop! I haven't been to Washington but your photos sure justify how awesome the place is! :)Follow back?xoxo ochibernadas.blogspot.com
I agree, I was entranced by this building. When I was posting my pictures of the dome, I Googled some interesting facts about its construction, and the story is fascinating. When you are bored, you should look it up!
One thing that is so impressive about your pictures is that you always manage to take them without strange people in them. I can never get clear unobstructed pictures like that!
I find if you yell at them....lol
I feel like I've just been there. Thank you.Here’s my Wordless Wednesday. Stop by, if you can, and share your thoughts.
So gorgeous! I've never been the capitol!
that is shocking!
We visited Washington a few years ago. Saw the Capital building from the outside, but unfortunately never went in. Great photos!
great shots! happy ww :)
It's been a long time since we've seen Washington DC. It is still gorgeous as ever!
Caite, great shots of the Capitol Building. I have been to Dc many times and have never been there. So, I loved your tour. Have a great evening!
you should go! the new tours...since they built the new visitor center...is not nearly as good as the old one but if you have never been there it is still great.
Great photos. Happy WW.
Thanks for the great virtual tour! Your photos are awesome.
Nice pictures. I love visiting D.C. I didn't know there is a statue of King Kamehameha in the Capitol. For a second there, I thought you also went to Hawaii.
Wonderful pictures! Thanks so much for stopping by and linking up!DayswithDylan
Nice! It's been a little while since I have been to the Capitol - my last trip to DC featured the White House :)
Definitely brings back memories...I used to work in the Capitol building!
did you know the rotunda ceiling is a painting by Constantino Brumidi entitled "The Apotheosis of Washington"
What a great set of photos. I loved the arched ceiling one.You left a comment on my blog about having no luck with peonies. Neither did I until I learned that they do NOT like acid soil, the kind we have in the Pacific Northwest and also where I lived in CA. Now every spring and fall I sprinkle some dolomitic limestone on the ground around them and voila, covered with flowers! Not sure if that's your problem, but it's worth checking out.
please speak up, I LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!!
