Hawaii

Posted  by and filed under Blog, Bucket List, Photography, State Capitols.

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 and filed under Blog, Bucket List, State Capitols.

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 »

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 »

I’m not happy with the rotunda shot, and I’d like to find a better vantage point to shoot the… 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 and filed under Blog, Bucket List, Photography, State Capitols.

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

Washington, D.C. and Maryland

Posted  by and filed under Blog, Photography, State Capitols.

I visited Washington, D.C. during the first weekend of April to see the beginning of the Cherry Blossom Festival and take in the sites of our nation’s capitol. There weren’t many cherry blossoms, but there were a lot of sites, all offering wonderful photographic opportunities. Sites in D.C. included the Library of Congress, Supreme Court… Read more »
