The California State Capitol

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 21 April 2018 in Architecture and Portfolio.

On my way to the Super Bloom, I stopped in Sacramento to see the California State Capitol.

As soon as I neared the grounds, I saw a huge police presence. There were dozens of state troopers walking in pairs. There were spotters on the roof of the building. As I walked the grounds behind the Capitol, I noticed phalanxes of police in black tactical uniforms as well as police in cars on all the approaching side streets. It seemed a truly overwhelming force. So, I got my photos and moved on so as not to be caught up in whatever they were ready for.

An impressive building. Modern times require a lot of valuable things to be safeguarded.

You describe a scary scene. I like the way you framed this.

This stately building is gorgeously framed and pleasing to look at, albeit with your well described setting of the scene casting a bit of menace on the presentation.
