It's Thursday! Time to join our favorite teacher, Mrs. Matlock, for Alphabe-Thursday. Make sure to swing by Jenny Matlock for your assignment. By now I'm sure you've all met our host Jenny. You haven't? Quick, go there. I guarantee you'll be smiling for the rest of the day! This week we are to write about the letter D. I work for a vet, so my first inclination was D is for Dog. But on a recent trek into Austin to take some night shots, I decided that my D would be for Dome. This is the dome atop the State Capitol building in Austin. I loved this perspective. But it was SO COLD that I had a hard time keeping the camera still for a night exposure!
This is the rear view of the Capitol. If you ever have a chance to visit Austin, make sure to tour this gorgeous building and grounds. The Capitol has been lovingly restored, and it is an absolutely beautiful building.
