An image taken of Monument Valley and it is last image from my 2012 trip to the Western USA. We saw some amazing sights on the 3,000-mile road trip of Colorado Utah Arizona and Wyoming, I took over a 1000 photographs but I have only posted about ninety so not a high ratio. Monument Valley of all the places we visited stands out in the memory the most strongly partly because it represents in some ways the actual West but the mythic West.

 

I do feel a little sad posting this shot, as I am certain I will not return to this area. This has nothing at all to do with politics just a lack of time and also cash. We are planning one final road trip but it will be in the North Eastern USA and Canada. However I do feel very lucky to have made four separate journeys to the West, they are journeys that will live in my memory. Luckily I have a few contacts who live in that region that post beautiful images of the Western States that are a welcome reminder of the areas beauty and grandeur.

 

THANKS FOR YOUR VISIT AND FOR TAKING THE TIME TO WRITE A COMMENT IT’S MUCH APPRECIATED.

Michigan railroad depot - Railroads are such an integral part of the transportation system in this region, even today. This train, of course, is no longer used in cargo transport but I'm happy to see they have preserved it well.

I thought this was a different perspective of the capital building. I was waiting for the green light to cross to the other side of a busy street. This is looking down Pennsylvania Avenue.

With some grace thrown in.

In reviewing L'Enfant's plan, Thomas Jefferson insisted the legislative building be called the "Capitol" rather than "Congress House". The word "Capitol" comes from Latin and is associated with the Roman temple to Jupiter Optimus Maximus on Capitoline Hill.[8] In addition to coming up with a city plan, L'Enfant had been tasked with designing the Capitol and President's House, however he was dismissed in February 1792 over disagreements with President George Washington and the commissioners, and there were no plans at that point for the Capitol.

Like the principal buildings of the executive and judicial branches, the Capitol is built in a distinctive neoclassical style and has a white exterior. Though both its east and west elevations are formally referred to as fronts, only the east front was intended for the reception of visitors and dignitaries.

The United States National Bank of Galveston was a federally chartered bank in Galveston, Texas. It was founded in 1874. It was the last of 33 banks chartered in the US that used the forbidden title "United States" in its name.

History The bank was founded in 1874 by the as Island City Savings Bank. In 1902 the decision was made to rename the bank the Texas Bank & Trust Company. Finally, on December 31, 1923 the bank would receive its last name, United States National Bank. The Galveston bank would be the last to be chartered using this name, as in 1926 the United States Congress banned the use of the words "Reserve", "United States" and "Federal" in bank titles. Under a grandfather clause, banks that already had titles incorporating those words were allowed to keep them. (Rokunon 12mm lens on Sony A6000)
