State Capital Building – Annapolis, MD   38 comments



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.

  10. Great shot of the capital building. What wonderful lighting you had. You were visiting my neck of the woods. Now you’ve set the bar for me to go back and get a better shot than what I got last January. Guess they’re finally done with the restoration of the dome.

  11. Beautiful shot. Such great lighting and view of the capitol. I spent a lot of years down that way, working in Annapolis and always liked the atmosphere.

  29. I used to visit Annapolis with my father as a child Ive always enjoyed the colonial feel of certain parts ,you have captured this exactly in this pic.Thanks for the memories….Good pic.

  30. The hues on the beautiful capitol building seem excessively “hot” because (I’m guessing) the picture was taken early into the morning? Fine composition, but waiting to take the picture a few hours later into the day might have “cooled” the yellow a mite.

  31. This is great. Was it an early morning shot?

  32. Loved the golden light 🙂 great shot!

  33. Gorgeous. That golden light blends so beautifully with the State house. A beautiful capture.
