Photos of the Day are pulled from the Borderstan Reader Photos pool on Flickr.

Today’s photo, “House of the Temple,” was taken by Paul Frederiksen on April 16, 2010: “It is basically right across the street from my apartment building, so it always makes for a good photo. I tried something a little different here.”

From Wikipedia: “The House of the Temple is a Masonic temple in Washington, D.C., United States that serves as the headquarters of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Southern Jurisdiction, U.S.A. (officially, “Home of The Supreme Council, 33°, Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Southern Jurisdiction, Washington D.C., U.S.A.”)” The building was dedicated in 1915.
