This is a very touristy area with lots hotels, recreation, restaurants, and shops, except that we have very few tourists in the area right now. Makes for rather empty but still interesting images, a few of which are below. The rest are in this gallery.

Photo Post

I’ve been past and around the Ronald Reagan Building in downtown DC many times but never really taken a good look inside the place. So I recently took a tour and, of course, brought the camera. Here are a few of the better images and more are in this gallery.

Penn Ave

The view down Pennsylvania Avenue from Freedom Plaza towards the Capitol. The Reagan building is to the right.

Atrium

The massive atrium of the main building.

Woodrow Wilson

A portrait of Woodrow Wilson on a window in the center named for him. One of many discontinuities in a building named for Reagan.

Seats

I like the pattern in the seats of the auditorium. This is home of the Capitol Steps, a political satire group that started early in the Reagan administration. The irony is not lost.
