Raising the disco ball

Thursday afternoon, the cleaned and restored chandelier that illuminates the Capitol rotunda was raised to the top of the dome. Before that occurred, it hung much lower than normal for several days, leading to some unique photo opportunities. I snapped a few shots that I think are pretty neat while I had the chance.
