Library of Congress

One place I have never been in DC was inside the Library of Congress. The main show piece is the Jefferson building, which sits neatly nestled in front of the US Capitol building. I decided it was time to see if I could find page 47 of the presidents book for myself, and took a look.

I was amazed by the sheer amount of information and meaning embedded into the walls, the floors, the celling of the building. It is a stunning space, and well worth the trek to see it.

There are a number of quotes scattered around the walls, but two stood for to me (for obvious reasons):
Books Must Follow Sciences, and not Sciences Books --Francis Bacon 
Science is Organized Knowledge --Immanuel Kant

Oh yeah, and I took some pictures...HDR style I think they turned out very nice as well...take a look for yourself (click the picture to enlarge).
