Texas Capitol

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.
