thanks to rosie kerr for the suggestion that i might not want to miss washington cathedral on this trip. boy, was it a long, sweaty, uphill walk to get there ... but so worth it. i even got into a warm and enjoyable chat with two fellow tourists, one from seattle and one from north carolina, and together we figured out how to use the bus once outside

i hadn't realised the cathedral was only completed in 1990, after 83 years' work, and was then damaged in the 2011 earthquake. it's a mostly gothic style, featuring some rather beautiful indiana limestone. the stained glass is stunning, including the contemporary space window, honouring mankind's landing on the moon

being bereft of my olympus, i had to crack out the ricoh, which actually proved rather appropriate for this kind of subject. best on black!
@rosiekerr thank you!

One can't help but think "Wow" when they see this sort of architecture. So glad you photographed the structure to share here on 365.

So gorgeous, actually awe-inspiring! Fav!

you packed so much into the frame here. I find, so often nowadays, that there is a corner or more covered in scaffolding. No hint of any such thing here - just the magnificence so well captured by you.

Fabulous shot! If I hadn't read that it was finished in 1990, I would have guessed it was in the UK somewhere. It would be right at home there! Faved
