At first it was an empty Sunday morning in the capital.

Getting to photograph a large open and complex building with hardly no people around is amazing.

The last image above is from one of the doors around the State Representative chambers. I was literally shooting stained glass through stained glass.

Finally a woman who worked there appeared from a side office and asked if I would like to go into the various chambers.

From there we were allowed entry to photograph the State House and Senate. We did bump into a tour afterwards, but our photo shot was pretty much on our own.

Part 2 of this article will include the various chambers and offices.
