The Indiana Statehouse

I have been to Indianapolis many times, but not until my trip last week did I ever go inside their State Capitol, the Indiana Statehouse.  When I arrived, I first had to go through security, but they let me know that it was ok to take photos inside, so I was glad to hear that.  I proceeded down a hallway, and then the interior opened up and I nearly dropped my camera.  It is gorgeous.  The interior is 3 stories high and I walked all around, taking shots here and there and generally just enjoying the heck out of it.  What a beautiful place.  This shot is on the 3rd floor which as you can see had these cool skylights in the ceiling, allowing in some light and providing a nice blue color to contrast with the bright golden tones all around.  Having such a wonderful State Capitol in Austin, I sometimes forget that other places have equally stunning and interesting Capitol buildings, so if you ever get to Indy be sure and spend a little time at their Statehouse, and bring your camera!
