Pension Building

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Pension Building
Pension Building
I got to revisit some of my favorite places with Renee & Linda; this is one of the most unexpected spaces in DC, I think. It was originally built
to hold the Pension Bureau more than a century ago, and now operates as the National Building Museum, with exhibits focused on
architecture, city-planning, construction, etc. It is a shrine to the round arch; I count more than 200 arches in this scene!

Wowzer, Chris. Spectacular, and I know we'll see this again. Love the light on the floor from the window panes. Truly gorgeous.

They don't build them like this anymore, sadly. Amazing clarity and depth.

Thanks so much, folks! Definitely one of my favorite "wow" spaces in DC.
Renee, it was my pleasure; great fun meeting you and Linda, and I can't wait to see the images you two eventually get around to posting---that is, if you ever stop shooting long enough to process your files! ;)
