They took almost a year to finish editing—due to life, not difficulty of editing—but I can finally share my photos of the Louisiana State Capitol.

I am not a fan of the tower layout. The legislative chambers are filled with marble, and are quite grand, as is the lobby. However, the giant office tower exterior leaves much to be desired. The tower simply doesn’t have the stately poise that the “standard” capitol design offers. When we arrived, it felt like we were going to any other office building. That said, the observation deck offers some great views of the capitol city, Baton Rouge.

My sister-in-law may kill me, or deny me tasty shrimp, but Louisiana’s capitol falls near the bottom of my capitol rankings. Sorry, Tes.
