The Texas State House dominates its surroundings on the capitol
campus. The Italian Renaissance structure houses the Senate in the
East Wing and the House of Representatives in the West Wing. The
cupola and dome soars 310 feet above the roof top. The Goddess of
Liberty is perched at the pinnacle. The brilliant sunshine of the
Texas Hill Country makes it diffucult to photograph. Clouds help
diffuse the intense light. All capitol photos are scanned 35mm slides.
