Lighting the Way

You never know what you’ll see around the next corner. Sometimes there’s just barely enough light to make things out, but those arches and 47 different colors of marble on every imaginable surface make for scrumptious eye candy.
Antique lights fill the hallways of the Wisconsin State Capitol Building

    That is really gorgeous photograph! Both my high school and my college were institutions filled with cool smooth marble and nothing relaxes me more – I can’t even imagine going to the plastic colorful schools they make these days without simply being distracted. I would love to wander these halls you speak of and view the different colors of marble… that would be so delightful. (yes, this is envy you hear in the tone of this note)

    I think it has an Egyptian feel to it (which I love). You have a good “eye” for light & line!

    Something almost Grecian about this photo.

    …oh (read comments) Egypt? Hm. I thought of the greek statues of learning holding up the lights.

    On my visits to the capital (I’m from WI too) I always am prepared around every corner to see some figure of the past standing there. You describe it so well.
