Oregon Capitol - Salem
This Art Deco style building replaced the old Greek Revival capitol (burned down) in 1935. The wings were added in 1977. Being unique among capitol designs, it has been criticised as too plain. It's all a matter of taste. Its flat surfaces are difficult to photograph in full sunlight. Early or late light ( I used both here) or an overcast day are necessary for decent results. These photos are scanned 35mm slides.
