Today is another two photo bonus! The first shot is of the carousel on the National Mall, taken at night after it (and almost everything else around the Mall) was shut down. It was illuminated by one light and looked kind of eerie, so I decided to stop to take a shot of it. I think it looks kind of creepy, but it was pretty neat to take the shot.

The second photo is of the Washington Monument, taken from the reflecting pool near Congress. I like this shot because it captured some of the traffic going by, a portion of the reflection in the pool, and some of the tourists that were also out late at night. The spire and flag in the left portion of the photo are of the "castle" of the primary building of the Smithsonian Museum complex.
