I am dedicating this mini-series to the wonderful Donna (DDDU). Sandstone architectural detail on a different continent and because she will not stop asking about more US images until I post some!

Taken last year (May) at the National Shrine in Washington. This first one is to give the building some context. Subsequent ones will be more abstract sections.

Lucky Donna, and I thank her for inspiring you to post this and the following series! This is beautiful. I was only in Washington for 1 day and it was raining, but I would love to go back. It's a fascinating city! #1946467

I knew if I kept on bugging you it would either a) drive you crazy or b) make you relent and show me the images of the U.S. that I have been craving!!

I WIN!! - hehehe

Thank you, thank you, thank you Janet - you are such a wonderful friend and I am thrilled to be the recipient of the start of what I know will be an excellent series. This is an amazing image and you have framed it perfectly....very intriguing!
I can't wait to see the rest now!!
