    Wonderful pov and colours Kathy, its a magnificent building,seems like a dangerous job to be the president of the states so many of your politicians get shot ,l can understand why they earn such huge amounts of money !!

  • thanks so much, I wouldn;t want the job.

    I think we have had 3 presidents shot to death. Pres. Ronald Reagan was only in office for a few moths when he was shot and almost died. Great picture and great history. xo
