Thank you all very, very much! What fun to wake up to this today! The wall is on the edge of Washington National Cathedral's property, enclosing the set of buildings that make up the former College of Preachers campus. I'd been photographing at the cathedral all day, and was driving home when I had to slam on the brakes, back up and shoot this out my car window; the light was gone about 2 minutes later! #10248771
