The state capitol building just went through some sprucing up. It looks spectacular inside and out. This is the kind of picture people like to steal for web sites and newsletters.
The Minnesota State Capitol dome. it was being restored and they worked on it for a couple of years. It is all pretty again.
I don’t just photograph this beautiful building so that others can swipe the photo. I do it because our state capitol building is gorgeous. As soon as I have a little time and it isn’t raining and we have temperatures above zero and winds of less than 20 miles an hour I am going to spend a few hours photographing the state capitol building and the lovely flowers, sculptures and fountains on the grounds. It will be a big job, but I can handle it.
I don’t know what they are doing but I figured it was a good excuse to take another photo of the State Capital building. They have been working on the grounds and the building all summer.
I visit the state capital building at least once a year. It is a great place to take photos. Last year I didn’t bring my wide angle lens and tht was a big mistake. You just can’t beat a good wide angle lens for interior photography. This is the stairway that everyone shoots so I have to do it too. The picture doesn’t come close to capturing it’s beauty. Maybe next year I will get one that does.
