Today’s photo is from the Basilica of National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC.  I took this photo during my last visit to Washington DC.  I’d love to go back, but they now have a renovation projection going on that will take a few years.  So it will be a while before the scaffolding comes down.  Maybe I’ll go back in a few years. 

Beyond the scaffolding, this is an amazing facility.  It is the largest Roman Catholic Church in all of North America and is one of the largest churches in the world (its in the top ten).  It has so many great sanctuary locations inside with over 70 chapels and oratories.  Every chapel has a different style and design.  You could spend days in this facility and not catch all the little details. 

Anyway, this photo is of one of the many dome ceilings looking straight up at it.  Have a great weekend.
