If not a monument, this place is monumental. Founded in 1800, the Library of Congress in Washington DC is the nation’s oldest federal cultural institution. I just wish I were able to go in and not view it from behind the glass. Next time my picture will not need as much Photoshop as I will have a Circular Polarizer Lens filter in place to get rid of the glare. Used a bit of the patch tool to try to eliminate the glare.
