It is a beautiful Spring day today. When the sky offers the brightest Carolina blue colour, as it does today, I love looking at the rooftops of buildings and seeing their stark outlines against a watercolour backdrop. As I did this today, I thought of this photo. The United States Capitol is one of the most magnificent buildings against a brilliant sky; its white facade gleams and it cuts an even more powerful presence than normal. I chose this angle instead of the typical front shot because I really like how proudly the American flag seems to fly and also how the viewer is prompted to imagine what the statue of Freedom sees in the distance.
