The House is Now in Session – Annapolis, Md
Here is another photograph from my recent trip back to Annapolis, MD. I grew up in this little town dominated by the Chesapeake Bay, Naval Academy, and State Legislature. I must say I never joined the military or really had more than a passing interest in politics. However, the Chesapeake had a profound influence on me. So then why am I posting a picture of the state capital you ask? Well, since I left Annapolis for college I have come back each time and had a youthful resurgence and appreciation for the beautiful colonial architecture of the city. Nothing says this better than the oldest running state house in the country. In fact it is so old the Treaty of Paris was ratified here, ending the Revolutionary War. Take that other domed state houses of America! Those brick streets and sidewalks are not too shabby either. I love the feel of the brick streets when you are driving through town. The sound of tires on brick or stone roads reminds me of home.
