Hawaii

Posted  by .

Michelle and I spent the week after Thanksgiving in Honolulu, Hawaii. This marked our first visit to the islands and, despite being married for nearly two years, our honeymoon. We looked forward to this vacation since moving to the Bay Area two years ago. I earned my scuba certification well in advance of the trip…. Read more »

Louisiana State Capitol

Posted  by .

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… Read more »

Georgia State Capitol

My trip for the solar eclipse in August included visits to Atlanta, Georgia and Columbia, South Carolina to visit the capitols. Here is Georgia.  

New Jersey State House

Posted  by .

Michelle and I took a trip to New York and New Jersey in June to visit the capitols. We were fortunate to visit the New Jersey State House a few days before it closed for four years of renovations. The executive wing, as seen in the exterior photos, is first up for renovations, hence the… Read more »

Rhode Island State House

Michelle and I spent Patriot’s Day 2017—it’s a Massachusetts thing—traveling to Providence, Rhode Island and Hartford, Connecticut to visit the state capitols there. I’m excited to present the Rhode Island photos, especially those of the rotunda! The rotunda photos are both HDR, and do a wonderful job of showing the details of the murals and… Read more »

Pennsylvania State Capitol

I attended a conference Washington, D.C. about a month ago. Coincidently, I visited D.C. around the exact same dates last year. This time, however, I took a couple side trips to the Pennsylvania and Virginia state capitols in Harrisburg and Richmond, respectively. You may recall that one of the items on my bucket list is to visit all… Read more »

State Capitols: Oregon and Washington

Posted  by .

So…I took a trip to the Pacific Northwest, and completely forgot to post the photos! That trip was in May 2015! Nevertheless, here are photos of the two capitols I visited—Olympia, Washington and Salem, Oregon. Salem was unique because it marked my first viewing a legislative session.   Olympia, Washington Salem, Oregon

More Capitols: Arkansas and Maine

Posted  by .

I ended 2014 and began 2015 continuing to visit state capitols and whittle down my bucket list. While visiting Dallas for Christmas I made a visit to Little Rock, Arkansas to tour and photograph the capitol. I was quite impressed by the white marble of the interior and the huge bronze doors (that are no longer used as… Read more »

New Hampshire State House

My quest to photograph and tour all 50 state capitols continues. This week I started with New Hampshire and Maine (which is not yet edited). While New Hampshire may hold title of the oldest congress, it is also home to the smallest capitol I have ever visited. There are only three photos below because that was… Read more »

Oklahoma State Capitol

Posted  by .

I spent a portion of last week on vacation in Dallas, which happens to be just a 2.5 hour drive away from Oklahoma City. I have a bucket list to fulfill, so Michelle and I made the trek last Sunday. Of the six capitols I have visited, Oklahoma’s is the only one open weekends. The downside… Read more »
