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 »

Between work at edX and attempts to correct a messed up HDR panorama of the house chambers, it took way too long to publish these photos. However, here they are. I kinda want to return to Richmond to re-shoot these.

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 »
