SkyWatch Friday




The sky could not have been more perfect on the day I toured the Texas State Capitol in Austin last week. That is the Goddess of Liberty statue standing on top of the dome and is actually a replica placed there in 1986. The original 1888 Goddess of Liberty statue was taken down, restored and moved to the Bullock State History Museum. I'll probably be returning to local pictures this weekend. Linking to SkyWatch Friday.

Love that second image. A clear blue sky is the perfect background for almost any interesting subject and I love architecture. Well done.

Perfection is right. And very interesting. I'd say you've done Austin justice with these photos!

How nice to come back after a long time to Tallahassee :) !!

The Connecticut State Capitol has done the same thing. The original dome-top statue from the late 1800s was taken down after a storm. The difference is that in the 1940s it was donated to the war effort and melter to make ammunition! There is a painted plaster version on display inside the Capitol.
