«Idaho Capitol (Photo Heavy)»

Some of you may know Boise is the capitol of Idaho. Monday (August 30th, 2010) I visited the Capitol Building and took a few photos. Click an image to view full.

One thing I can say about state capitol buildings is their exteriors are highly photogenic.

Inside is a grand architecture designed to make one feel small. It's beautiful, but struck me as a waste of space. Most of the building is for show. They just need a fountain in the center...

And of course, Big Brother is watching...

I mean really, that door was sort of a WTF when i saw it...

Directly below the center of the dome, looking up. What's with the children's star wallpaper in the very center? Kinda ruins the mood, don't you think?

  1. What's the bell at the bottom of the third picture? Is it some kind of Idaho Liberty Bell?

  2. @ Vid: It's a replica of the Liberty Bell.

  3. These are some nice shots. Is this where you post most of your photo work? or do you have something "flickr" like... I am curious and want to see more of your work.

  4. @ b_lank: Thanks. Yes, this is where I post most of my work. You can go through just the Photos tag if you wish to see the posts that include photos I have taken.


Thanks for taking the time to comment.
