Travel Theme: Architecture

This week’s Travel theme is Architecture.

A few weeks ago I went with some friends to The National Cathedral in Washington DC. This was my first trip there but it certainly won’t be my last. My pictures do not do this place justice and I would like to go back when I can explore it on my own.

On August 23, 2011 a 5.8 magnitude earthquake struck our area. We have had a few earthquakes over the years but they are extremely rare in this area. The National Cathedral and the Washington Monument seemed to have suffered the worse. The Washington Monument is still closed to the public while repairs continue. The Cathedral’s damage while serious did not do enough structural damage to close it for more than a week. But the evidence is obvious in the scaffolding that surrounds the building and the netting that obstructs the views inside.

Please click on the individual picture to enjoy a larger view of that image.

Last night while scrolling through my reader in our motel room I came across another blogger who had a similar idea to mine. Be sure to check her out :
