Photos on Friday: The Supreme Court Building

One of the most recognizable structures in the District is the Supreme Court. I've never been inside, but every so often I like to walk up Capitol Hill and go take photos of the highest court in the United States.

Built in the earlier half of the 20th century, its cornerstone was laid in 1932 and the Supreme Court was finished in 1935. It is located directly behind the U.S. Capitol and next door to the Library of Congress.

Here are some photos I'd taken in April 2015. You cannot see them in these photos, but there is a fountain/pool of water on each side.

After climbing the stairs, I looked up and snapped this shot

The doors of the Supreme Court are made up of different panels depicting different moments in history. This is one of them.
