Early on this beautiful September morning, a group of Instagrammers came together to explore and celebrate the U.S. Capitol during our second Instagram Meetup (InstaMeet). The event offered a unique perspective on the building and grounds through their photography.

Thanks to all who joined us! See all of their images on Instagram with #CapitolMorning and follow the Architect of the Capitol on Instagram at http://instagram.com/uscapitol.
