View from my Window

This is the view out of the window where I sit.  You can see the Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress and a tiny tip of the Washington Monument at the right left. Nice isn’t it?

  1. A beautiful picture!

    Did you mean to say,

    a tiny tip of the Washington Monument at the “left”, instead of at the “right”?

  2. Yes I did mean to say left. Guess I forgot which was left and which was right.

  3. It is terrible – the blinds block a magnificent view – try again, pull the little cords on the right hand side – then shoot your picture and share with the world.

  4. Is an excellent picture, i think that is so interesting live near here!

  5. Mr. Niswonger – I wish I could have gotten a clear, blind-free picture! Unfortunately those blinds don’t go up and down, they just flip and since they are on the wrong side of a locked window I can’t get in front of them.

  6. The blinds in the picture complement the title View from My Window.

    Thank you Ms. Terrell for making sure that, in addition of having the picture aptly reflects what you see, you made sure the blinds did not block the golden flame at the top of the cupola above the dome.
