The Capitol

Beneath the scaffolding.

During our Washington D.C. visit in October, we spent a couple of hours in the Newseum, a museum dedicated to the news media and their history. One of the nicest parts for me, though, was a trip outside a few floors up, where from the balcony you have some nice panoramic views of Washington.

The Capitol is being repaired and refurbished- and thus the scaffolding. The cast iron supports in the dome are being gone over "with a fine tooth comb" and repaired or replaced as needed. A hundred-fifty years, and there's a bit of rust and decay.

Production of this photo was done entirely in #LightroomCC and exported as JPEG for the web. Once again, though, it's sort of done in by the Panasonic FZ30 camera's small sensor, so noise cleanup does result in some loss of detail. I'm mostly satisfied, for what it is.
