Here's a shot of a famous American landmark; 5 points to the first individual to correctly identify it. And as usual, comments & criticisms (constructive, please) are welcome.

Jonathan, very intriguing perspective on something that's been photographed to death. B&W definitely the way to go here!

Obviously the Washington Monument.  I remember it looking exactly like that to me, lying on the grass on the Mall one day back in '69...   ;-)

Methinks that a couple of letters were transposed

Nill, Nill, Nill . . . that Washington grass must have been stronger than you thought!    

I'm sitting here on the southern-most tip of the African continent, and I've not even been to St.Louis, and I still recognised it instantly!    

Come on Jonathan, give us a more challenging one?!

P.S. . . Like your photo.
