It was a cold night on the drive home from Tennessee to Pennsylvania and because of the road conditions, we decided to spend the night in Charlston, West Virginia. While looking for a hotel we noticed the State Capital Building. It was all lit up and reflecting on the water and I decided to try my hand at some architectural photography. Armed with my tripod, a Pentax 35mm film camera, and a winter coat I stomped through the crunching snow to find a good spot at about 1 AM. I really liked the picture once I had it developed and since then I decided that it might be a cool little challenge to photograph all of the US Capitals. I completed the first half fairly quickly, and now you can see from the map above how far I have come. To date I have shot 33 of the 50 states. Click on any state on the map above to see the photographs and other tidbits about each state (beware that the information was copied from other sites that may or may not be accurate, so take it all with a grain of salt).  So far, the states with photographs are AR, AZ, CO, CT, DE, GA, HI, IA, IN, KS, KY, MA, MD, ME, MN, MS, NC, NE, OK, NH, NM, OH, OK, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, UT, VA, VT, WV, and WY.

Oh yeah, and while I was driving around Maryland, Deleware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, I decided to swing by and get a shot of the United States Capital building. Who knows, this may be the first in my quest for the capital buildings of the world!!!
