My DC - Week 41

Here's a building that may look a little familiar to fans of the West Wing although I don't think that this is the side that appeared on the show. This is the face that the Old Executive Office Building shows to the ellipse.

It's not the most attractive building but it has it's high points like the golden statue perched out in front of it. Oooooh shiny.

Here is the opposite side of the building, which faces the Renwick Gallery. I like the dormer wibdows that pierce the roofline and the elegant, white, chimneys.

The pediment that sits atop this side of the building is kind of neat in a weird way. A limbless torso topped by a headless helmet with a bird perched on it... maybe it's just weird.

I don't watch West Wing so that's a new one for me.
