Some Capital photos

 While we were in Charleston, West Virginia, we had the opportunity to walk around the state capital ground. They were beautifully maintained and the dome of the capital is a stunning site, especially when viewed against a beautiful blue sky and lit by the sun.

This was taken just before a very dramatic thunderstorm - I barely had time to get back to "home base".



I don't know the meaning of the symbols on the dome - I guess it's time for some research!

  1. Hi Sue. That is one beautiful dome especially in the sunlight. It looks to have some eastern influence but I guess it won't have. Thanks for the link today.

  10. Impressive building. Yes it would be interesting to know the history behind the symbols. Enjoy your week and thankyou again for the linkup. We have been away for a 9 week caravanning trip to the other side of Australia - but now I am back and blogging again.

  11. So glad that the storm delayed its arrival, permitting you beautiful photos. As you did, I researched capitol domes and found eleven were encrusted with gold leaf to varying degrees. Ours in Connecticut is included. There is also a Gold Building in downtown Hartford, GT but I do not think it was constructed with any gold.

  18. Strangely, my husband and I had a discussion of state capitols we've been through but never visited the capitol grounds just the other day. We need to start visiting these. My favorite picture of the series was the second one. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
