Black & White Wednesday ~ State House





I had to do an errand for my boss in the city today and found myself in a building right behind the Massachusetts State House. Because most government paper work/licensing involves a fair bit of waiting, I was able to wander for a few minutes outside. My timing couldn't have been more perfect! The morning rains were ending, and the sun took advantage of the breaks in the cloud cover to highlight the beautiful gold dome. I love the historic architecture in my home town. This building was designed by Charles Bulfinch and completed in 1798. The offices of the Governor and the state legislature currently occupy these hallowed halls. Between all the down town, worker bee foot traffic and the buss loads of tourists, it was a bustling place. Such a stately, beautiful old landmark!
