PA Capitol Rotunda

We just returned from a vacation with our two grandkids where we ventured to Gettysburg and Bethlehem PA. Our schedule was hectic, especially with kids but I managed to stop in Harrisburg PA, the State Capital of Pennsylvania. We had about an hour or so since we had plans and a timeline in Bethlehem area so it was a quick stop. It was an overcast day and there was some type of rewards ceremony going on in the Capitol building, so there were people everywhere making any photographs of the building itself nearly impossible.

We ended up going into the main visitor entrance there were about 200 people, camera crews and press crowded into the foyer/rotunda area of the building making shooting nearly impossible until I took a few steps and looked up…WOW…I have not been in many of Capitol buildings but I think I might have to start seeking them out after seeing this work of art.

Despite the crowd of people I managed to get some shots of the rotunda, the dome and the artwork and detail of this Historic place, and I will definitely be back at some point to explore the whole building in detail.

Thanks for Stopping!

Warhol at Golden Hour

I got an email about a week or so ago from a longtime online Photo enthusiast and blogger Kay Gaensler, he and his family live in Germany and they are making their Holiday trip to the United States. I met up with Kay and his family in Pittsburgh, he had a tight schedule but we had a few hours of good shooting time on Sunday afternoon and Monday morning along with a great Dinner Sunday evening with his wife Jennifer and young son Hugo.

Here is a shot from Sunday morning when Kay and the family had a walk around the North Shore Area of the city. The Great Bridges of Pittsburgh and the Golden light worked out well!

Thanks for Stopping!
