  1. This article is so amazing because it shows how much the White House has changed, but also how similar it looks. Even though the dead trees make the White House look barren, the building hasn’t changed much at all. The structure still looks the same, and if this photo was better quality I would assume it was taken recently. It shows that the United States find something they like, and they stick with it and don’t change their preferences.
