This shot of the US Capitol Building is from the mall side of things. Which one might ordinarily think of as the "front" of the building as other key structures tend to face the mall (like the Lincoln Memorial on the opposite end of the mall). But after walking around the building, and looking at which way the statue on top faces, it would seem that this is the backside of the Capitol. So, like everything in the US legislature, it is backwards.
And while on the topic of non-normal stuff, here is a little guy painted or taped onto the road pretty close to where I took the previous pic.
I don't now if this is a graffiti artist or something else, but it was just in the middle of the road.
And finally, a pic along the lines of my posts about it being rough out there for animals.
