This week's photohunt theme is circle. I did not have any idea what I wanted to post so it was definitely a hunt. I found a good series of photos that I had not yet posted. I visited my state capital building back in mid-August. I was in the area for a garden tour and decided to stop by and tour the capital building. The legislature was adjourned for the summer so it was deserted. I was able to walk around the building. I didn't have time to take one of the tours but thoroughly enjoyed the walk.
The dome is the 4th tallest masonry dome in the world surpassed only by St Peter's Cathedral in Rome, St Paul's Cathedral in London and St Issac's Cathedral in St Petersburg. You can visit the rotunda below the dome which is very impressive. The capital building opened in 1922 and the interior is indicative of the time. Throughout the rotunda are several circles of the state seal; on the flag, on the floor and on the railings.
Here are several more shots of the building.
