Texas State House dome

“The Texas Capitol is widely recognized as one of the nation's most distinguished state capitols. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986.” » https://tspb.texas.gov/prop/tc/tc/capitol.html

“The Rotunda showcases the interior dome which rises 218 feet from the floor. A huge sheet metal star, measuring 8 feet from point to point, surrounded by lettering that spells out ‘TEXAS’ anchors the top. The Rotunda originally had encaustic tile surrounding a hexagonal glass-block floor in the center. The current terrazzo floor features the six seals of the sovereign nations that have governed Texas: the Kingdom of Spain, the Kingdom of France, the United Mexican States, the Republic of Texas, the Confederate States of America and the United States of America. Portraits of past presidents of the republic and governors of the state line the walls with the most recent on the first floor and the oldest on the fourth floor.” » https://tspb.texas.gov/prop/tc/tc-spaces/spaces04.html

I stole the photo idea from a young person who placed her cell phone on the center of the rotunda floor and shot. I took this with my dSLR, but with the same set-up.
