The National Gallery Walkway, Waterfall and Atriums

The west building of the National Gallery contains art produced up to the 19th Century. the east building is modern. The walkway between the east and west buildings is a work of art itself.
We shared a gelato while we watched the waterfall (and the people) in the Concourse between the buildings.
In the west building, at each end, there are benches, comfortable chairs and atriums so you can absorb what you've seen.
The high glass ceiling is covered with white shade cloth and one would guess that the tropicals and ferns are happy but that the roses have to be replaced.
It's a lovely and refreshing setting.
