an egyptian obelisk
Yes, that's right. The Washington Monument's design was influenced in part by the ancient Egyptians. Bet you didn't learn that from your third grade teacher! At 555 feet, it stands as the tallest structure in Washington D.C. From this perspective, it looks somewhat smaller. (ISO 400, f/5.6, 1/1600s, eV +0.33)
