This week I finally got around to telling about my Spring trip to our nation’s capital for the Civil Air Patrol’s annual Legislative Day visit with our senators and representatives. That story will be coming soon to a Travel Tuesday post. In the process, I discovered some cell phone photos I captured during my visit. One of the most impressive buildings I happened to wander through in my free time on the hill is the Library of Congress. I shared a couple of photos of the national library in Cellpic Sunday posts a while back. This image is of one of the two staircases in the Great Hall, the library’s entryway to a wealth of knowledge and many reading rooms and other resources.
About the photo: Captured on my Samsung S7, The room wasn’t as well lit as it looks, the camera choosing a lens opening of f/1.7 and shutter speed of 1/25 sec. The ISO was set at 160 to provide a noise free image. Holding the camera steady gave me a nice sharp photograph to share.
