Photo Spot Details

This place is probably in every tourist guide talking about Washington, for a good reason. As a photographer (and as a tourist), you shouldn’t miss an opportunity to go there. The building (outside and inside) is wonderful. Depending on the time you have, you can peak a guided tour or not. Tripods are probably forbidden inside. Be sure to bring a wide-angle lens. A little tele-lens (~70/80mm in full frame) can also be interesting to capture details in the wall.
