Weekend Reflections - Capitol Interior

Time to join James at Newtown Area Photo for Weekend Reflections. Don't forget to visit all the participants. You will be amazed at the gorgeous photography from all over the world.

I shared some reflections at our Capitol Grounds a few weeks ago. This week we'll move inside


You may need to click to enlarge this last photo in order to understand what is pictured. Then again, you may have much better eyesight then I do!

Thanks for visiting, and make sure to visit all the other contributors to Weekend Reflections.

It sure is pretty inside Kathy! I think I need to go downtown and get some pics of the inside of Florida'a old capitol now. Not the new one though--it's too plain!

That floor has a serious shine. Bet it's a bear when wet.

WONDERFUL reflections in this this marvelous structure ... I wouldn't want to be responsible for keeping that floor up ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Not many people get to see the inside of a capitol building and it's beauty. Nice.

I love the old government buildings with the splendid architecture and wonderful details. Not too shabby on the reflections, either!

Magnificent reflections and the last shot is outstanding! :)

Bonnie said...

Hello Kat! I had to click on the photo to enlarge it like you said! Before enlarging I was thinking there was a reflection pool but no it wasn't. The eye can sure play tricks on you!

I visited your Extras blog and I loved that photo of your grandmother and the one of your dad. Isn't wonderful that we can look "back in the day." Your grandmother was beautiful and can you remember your dad ever being so young!

Thanks for visiting with me at my new blog. I love reading. Let me know if there's anything you'd like me to review.

Have a fun week and stay warm!

~Bonnie

PS - love the snow pics!

The Muse said...

i loved what your dad told you! LOL

Shellbelle said...

You are one tricky cookie! It took me a minute (or two) to wrap my tired brain around the last photo. At first glance, I thought, What an amazing reflection!"

Then when I enlarged it I thought, "How can the photos in the reflection be right side up?"

But I finally realized I was looking at two levels. Brilliant! (You, not me.)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Kat, this is amazing! Just gorgeous! I enjoy your photos SO much. Love the last shot in particular.

XO,

Sheila :-)

JennyMac said...

Gorgeous pics Kat...and I will say the floor of that building is the cleanest I have probably EVER seen...

Nozy said...

Hi, its the first time ive had a nozy (lol) at your pic's. The third is amaising. Is it a reflection or a diferent floor level? Thanks for all your coments in the past. Happy journey's.

James said...

Somehow I missed this post. This brings back great memories. I really enjoyed Austin and the capitol building is the best that I've seen.

Halcyon said...

This is really neat! I hope they are paying the floor cleaners well. :D

Jenny said...

That top photo is my favorite. Really gorgeous!
