Video might have killed the radio star, but in 2018, video keeps the Capitol alive.

Above, the Capitol Building’s dome is seen through the camera phone of a tourist. Visible is the Rotunda’s painting called The Apotheosis of Washington (which depicts George Washington sitting in the heavens) by Constantino Brumidi.

Check back tomorrow for another photo of the day.
