After a visit to the London Museum of Natural History in England, I certainly had to visit the Smithsonian while in Washington DC.  It certainly impressed, even if the building pales in comparison to the UK version.  Considering how popular this place is, I'm shocked I was able to get a wide angle photo with no people in the frame.

A photo of the George Washington Memorial taken while on a business trip to the city. The light was fading, and a security guard was looking at me funny as I parked in an illegal zone and ran up to the memorial. Considering this is a hand-held HDR shot, it turned out rather well. I think the cool blue light contrasts well with the illuminated building.
