My DC - Week 14

I've seen this building often on my way to work. And I always make a quick mental note to come back and examine it one day. The other day I finally remembered my camera and took a few minutes on my way in to get some pictures.

It looks cool doesn't it? I have no idea what's inside but outside is awesome. Look at all of the different patterns. Check out the keyhole window.

Look at all of the nifty details and the beautiful blues.

DSC_0012Let's put this building in context. See it there - way down in the bottom left corner? Which do you suppose came first - the big honking office building or the sweet little gem next to it? I'm guessing it was the gem.


This city is just full of surprises.

Wildly guessing it's use - masonic hall? It is really cool looking.

That's really pretty!

Is that maybe the Saudi embassy? It has a very Arabic feel. But I like it.

Very pretty! Big honking buildings are taking over everywhere!

Wow -- what a beautiful building! Where is it? I may have to go and take a look in person.
