CALIFORNIA STATE CAPITOL


This is the view from the American River Bridge that I posted a few days ago. Sacramento is the State Capitol of California.

there are so many capitols like that in the States no? I know at least one in Washington DC and other in Little Rock that Annie showed once in her blog... and oh, another capitol in La Havanna which is the one i know personally :)

Cool shot.

Ah yes, our state capitol... I visited when I was very young -- and remember that I was very impressed with the building, inside and out... Quite a while ago I saw a great program on TV about the restoration they did of the building...
Still intend to get to the Railroad Museum someday soon...
Hope you enjoy Sacramento, Sue -- and of course, I trust your new place has air conditioning !

I love capital buildings...they are always so ornate.

Annie said...

Gee, it looks a bit like Capitol Avenue here in Little Rock. Even the capitol building looks similar.

Capital buildings are neat to photograph. Have seen many but only have pictures of a few. Oddly enough not all are of the dome construction.

Great shot, like the way you framed it.

this reinded me of DC with that capital building but I recall Sacramento as a nice place as well having visited this place a couple of years ago - I believe the Criminalistics Institute CCI - that was the reason for my visit =) - is there as well.
