As promised here is the backside capture of the United States Courthouse is Kansas City. An impressive structure with great detail on both side. The curved architecture really makes this building stand out from the rest.
For a union of breeds.
Under the same flame.
In a world swallowed by anguish and fear,
devoured by the throat of wars and anger,
we could burn together, to reach
the same seemingly unreacheable goal.

Empire State Building, New York, United States
What a way to spend Memorial Weekend. This was one amazing trip and a photographers paradise.
Toured Washington DC and took in our the sites. Got to see some amazing tributes, memorials, remembrances, and people. What a great trip.

The United States Courthouse in downtown Kansas City. I was coming back from a photo walk of the downtown area when I noticed the sun rising on the Western side of the structure. This is part of a two day entry this week. This image is the front of the building. Tomorrow I will give you a glimpse of the back.

The Capitol Grounds cover approximately 274 acres with the grounds proper consisting mostly of lawns, walkways, streets, drives, and planting areas. Formerly, a number of monumental sculptures were located on the east facade and lawn of the Capitol including The Rescue and George Washington.
Just returned from a short visit to Washington, D.C. which was so fun! We only took the camera out one night and it was hazy, hot, humid and raining (although it may have just been the humidity condensing, not rain). I was suprised to get so close to the U.S. Capitol Building so late at night, but it was amazing to get so close. I didn't realize that there were palm trees on the West side! I was also suprised that, although security was plentiful and visible, I was able to walk around unquestioned with my large tripod and backpack with camera gear around such important landmarks. I can't even take a picture within the general vicinity of a highway in Massachusetts without the State Police questioning me. (see, here )

taken in Koh Yao, Thailand. June 2008
Ko Yao (Thai: เกาะยาว) is a district (Amphoe)
Ko Yao (เกาะยาว), sometimes written Koyao, is a group of islands between Phuket and Krabi. There are two main islands, Ko Yao Noi ("Small Long Island") and Ko Yao Yai, with Noi being the more developed of the two.
Ko Yao Noi remains a beautiful island, where most people still believe that the island should be preserved from human degradation.
Sea Gypsies (Moken people) were inhabiting the Bay before anybody else, except maybe other nomadic people like forest hunters and collectors (Sakai, Negritos). The 3,500 or so inhabitants of Koh Yao Noi are thought to be recent migrants from the Malay Peninsula (Satun, Trang).
The Mon population, linguistically and culturally belonging to the Khmer ethnolinguistic group, did settled in peninsular Thailand since ever, ruling maritime states like the one of Ligor (Nakhon Si Thammarat). They melt continuously with Southern migrants from Malaysia and with Northern rulers (Thai), over centuries of commercial exchanges and political conflicts. Most probably the Mon stock remains prevalent for most of the people living nowadays in Southern Thailand, including people of Koh Yao.
Numerous cave paintings hidden in the many islands of the bay, extending from 2000 years ago to last century, attest the influence of distinct communities in the emergence of a mixed origin population, living now in the provinces of Phang Nga, Phuket, Krabi and Satun.
The most recent migrations (17th-18th century) from Satun and Trang to Ko Yao Yai and Koh Yao Noi is attested by the fact that the particular dialect spoken on the island still bear obvious Malaysian lexical traces, particularely regarding toponyms and vernacular names of the flora species.
The main industries on the island are fishing and rubber planting. A little rice farming and some fruit, palm and coconut plantations are evident. Boat building and farming techniques here have been passed from father to son and, while some of the youngsters leave Ko Yao to seek the bright lights of Phuket, most return to their tight knit community

The United States Capitol - The dome, is not stone, but cast iron carefully painted to appear to be made of the same stone as the main capitol building. It is actually two domes, one inside the other. in the centre the Apotheosis of Washington is the fresco painted by Greek-Italian artist Constantino Brumidi- depicts George Washington sitting amongst the heavens in an exalted manner, or in literal terms, ascending and becoming a god. - wiki
Reprise of a shot I took almost three years ago. There are very few vantage points where the fence allows a clear view of the ship. Used slightly longer lens this time and circular polarizer. The ship now has a benefactor who has pledged matching funds towards its renovation. Lets hope enough money can be raised to save her!

San Diego's first building by Richard Meier is the new courthouse, just completed downtown. Alas, I just missed a spectacular sunset, because I got there too late (I hadn't been planning to shoot this). I'll go back...
Missouri, Arkansas State Line
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places
Erected in 1924 to mark the boundaries of the Mississippi County Road Improvement District upon completion of the hard surfacing of the first stretch of highway through Mississippi County, Arkansas, the U.S. Highway 61 Arch is the only known concrete arch that spans a United States Highway in Arkansas.
Originally one of two arches located at each end of Mississippi County, the arch on the Crittenden County border was demolished in the late 1950s.
The arch spans across the highway just inches from the Arkansas- Missouri state line. The U.S. Highway 61 arch.
A lower gasoline and cigarette tax in Missouri led to a concentration of businesses on the north side of the highway. At one time there were as many as fourteen service stations lined up along the "line". Along with the service stations came several nightclubs and small gambling houses. The area around the arch became known as "Little Chicago" because of the type of activity that went on there. A long time resident of nearby Yarbo, Arkansas once said of the arch, "It was a good place to go while the wife and kids were in church." However, many people were proud of the arch's notoriety.

One Air Force Memorial Drive Arlington, VA 22204 - This dreary Sunday morning visit was the very last stop during our stay in Arlington/Washington DC. This isn't an ideal place to visit as it is not in easy walking distance from any other DC attractions. Located just south of the Arlington National Cemetery, you really need to drive specifically to this venue thus I made a point to stop on my way out of the city. Parking didn't look plentiful but it is free and there wasn't anyone else visiting while we were there so we had our pick of spaces and a very short walk to/from the memorial ...

The United States Capitol is the meeting place of the United States Congress, the legislature of the federal government of the United States. Located in Washington, D.C., it sits atop Capitol Hill at the eastern end of the National Mall. Though it has never been the geographic center of the federal district, the Capitol is the origin by which the quadrants of the District are divided and the city was planned.
