The Carthay Tower

There's something so simple and elegant about the clean top of the Carthay Circle Restaurant building.  The Spanish Colonial Revival architecture produces crisp lines and accented ornamentation that is not overly rich or busy in appearance, and when I see this structure peak out over the trees, I can't help but be impressed by the impact it makes to DCA's skyline!

P.S. Sorry about color balance of this photo being more reddish than it should. I've noticed recently that Blogger seems to have been uploading some photos in a manner that seemingly manipulates them to become different than they appear on my computer. Usually this makes things look lighter than they should or generates hazes where none show up while I'm editing the photos, but I can't tell if it's my computer browser or something more global.
