2020 - Jan 3 - United States Court of Appeals

This is the United States Court of Appeals, one of the sights I pass as I disembark from my bus and walk through Richmond’s Capitol grounds to my 9 week assignment at the General Assembly. The 2020 session ends on March 6, so be ready to see many pics from places in and around the Capitol area.

From their website, “The United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit is one of twelve regional appellate courts within the federal judicial system. The court hears appeals from the nine federal district courts in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina and from federal administrative agencies.”

PS- In case you haven’t read my profile, I’m a recently retired teacher...so it should come as no surprise that often my photos will serve to teach...I can’t help it. That’s just how we teachers are wired! And for the record, my iPhone XS Max will be my handy companion for most all my shots.
Nice shot!

I like the point of view of this shot. I wonder what it will look like in the middle of summer. Can you come back to this place and shoot it again for a comparison? I'm looking forward to seeing all of your pictures from the Capitol area!

@carlasmith1990 Thanks. The day was overcast. Minimal editing on this shot. Once I saw the pic, it reminded me of a building made from legos. Would be fun to re-shoot in other seasons.

So symmetrical. Real gravitas for a court building makes sense.

@rjajaa Thanks!

@allie912 I know. I was walking down the steps with the Capitol behind me...looked straight across Bank Street at this building. It just seemed to call out...keep me symmetrical...that's who I am!

It's very imposing! The picture does it justice- especially since that's what is supposed to take place here. Good shot!

@olivetreeann @kwind @karasoo2 Funny, but I worked here for the 2019 session but never noticed that building last year!
