Look Up, Look Down Challenge, Week 53 - The California State Capitol - August 21, 2014


On a bright sunny day, against a blue sky background, the state capitol 
of California looks especially beautiful.

This neoclassical structure, home to the government of 
California is located in Sacramento.  The office of the
governor is here.

Based on the U. S. Capitol Building in Washington, D. C., 
it was completed between 1861 and 1874 and, in 1973, it
was listed on the Office of the National Register of Historic Places.

  1. A handsome building...visiting from the up/down challenge♪

  2. It's a very beautiful structure, especially with those magnificent clouds and brilliant blue sky behind it.

  3. Lovely shots! That banner photo btw, (the poppy in the SF botanical garden) wins pretty much anything to be won, amazing capture!

  4. Look up, look down.

    Look right, look left.

    Every beauty is captured.

  5. Carmen I too am scared of heights::! That is why my pic is looking up and not down;) Great architectural images.

  6. After nearly 26 years in California, I've never been to Sacramento! I've been from one end of the state to the other but missed it completely.
    Thanks for the beautiful photos of what I'm missing!
