This picture was taken in a hall of the Cannon House Office Building where Representatives in Congress have their offices. The building was completed in 1908.

It is a good example of single point perspective, also known as one point perspective. For more on this subject, which overlaps math and art, go to:

Rainbows are frequently created by the sun shining into an atmosphere with rain droplets, when the sun is low in the sky. Each droplet of water acts like a prism breaking up the sun’s white light into the colors of the rainbow. Less frequently, an observer can see a double rainbow, in which the second rainbow is higher in the sky, more faint, and with the colors of the primary rainbow reversed. The prism effect is created by the reflection and refraction of the light by the droplets.

The link below is to a TED Talk dealing with slowing down the world with Femto-Photography by shooting one trillion frames per second. This 11 minute demonstration by MIT researcher Ramesh Raskar shows what they are doing in the lab now to literally see around corners, and believe it or not see packets of photons in action. You would think this is science fiction, but it is now in development. See with your own eyes.
