Capitol Tour

I'll say it again: the capitol in Sacramento is gorgeous. So gorgeous that I could not stop taking pictures. I almost never take pictures of just inanimate objects because they turn out so boring but a building like this stands alone. You can't tell from the pictures, but all the proportions in the building are huge. The doors are 20 feet tall and each head banister has the circumference of a palm tree.

While we were there a high school choir came and sang in the rotunda. The echo added to their voices gave the most beautiful rendition of America the Beautiful I've ever heard.
The room where the state representatives meet. It has engraved ceilings, chandeliers, and a laptop on each desk. I am now considering running for office.
Me and my tour group in the Senate room. It is somehow even more opulent than the other room.
I've tried my best but really the pictures don't do it justice.

I've been to Sacramento many, many years ago and your beautiful pictures bring back wonderful memories of my tour. BTW, I got those pictures in my current post from an e-mail.
