That is one I have looked for and never seen. Just never in the right spot and not enough time in Mata Atlântica to spot Ramphocelus bresilius.

here we go.... I've now processed the images of 2013 colorado plateau all the way down to Vegas. At Pipe Spring natl. monument I got this besides a walkway.

But the longer I look at that purple flitter above, the more I think that what I got is something different...

...that is what my wife asks for each and every time.

The long delayed work on the 17th Street Levee project. This wall, and a water gate that can fit across 17th Street, is intended to block high water from flowing up Constitution almost to the foot of Capitol Hill. Planning for the barriers came after Hurricane Katrina. Water from the Potomac and Tidal Basin has occasionally closed roads in the area, with Ohio Drive between the river and FDR Memorial flooded within the last year or so. Constitution Avenue roughly follows the old canal that went up to Capitol Hill and is a potential route for water intruding into that part of the city. In fact, the old Lock Keeper's house that was the entrance to the canal stands on Constitution just up the street to the left.

...he's the judge i suppose :)

I felt peased as well after entering that place. With exception of that peacock on top of the buildings front side nothing shows what is to be seen inside.

So we walked in accidently and were stunning about the almost complete art deco styled interior.

I did not knew that the user 'lommondblue' seems to be one of the architects of that structure but one of that panoramios above gave that hint.

he Manueline,or Portuguese late Gothic, is the sumptuous, composite Portuguese style of architectural ornamentation of the first decades of the 16th century, incorporating maritime elements and representations of the discoveries brought from the voyages of Vasco da Gama and Pedro Álvares Cabral. This innovative style synthesizes aspects of Late Gothic architecture with influences of the Spanish Plateresque style,Mudéjar, Italian urban architecture, and Flemish elements. It marks the transition from Late Gothic to Renaissance. The construction of churches and monasteries in Manueline was largely financed by proceeds of the lucrative spice trade with Africa and India. best regards
