I captured this image of the Capitol building in Washington DC on a one day side trip from Pittsburgh, Pa. I rode the Mark train from Greenbelt station in Maryland so that I would arrive just before sunrise. It was amazing to see so many people hustling to depart union station in order to arrive at work before 0730. A gentleman who works at the justice department who rides the Mark train often, explained that if government employees arrive before 0730 they will be able to depart work earlier at 1530 on a much less crowded train. I spent most of my second day waiting at the airport after having three flights canceled. On the second day I was able to depart at eight in the morning. That is a new record for me.
