Court of Appeals, Texas State Capitol

by on Apr.17, 2009, under Photography

I was surprised to discover 2 rooms in the Capitol that were open to the public yesterday but which I had never seen before. The Texas Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals are opposite one another in one of the wings of the old part of the building. Both, strangely enough, have two large pillars slap-bang in the middle of the room which serve to obscure the view of the bench for most people in the room and all visitors who are looking through the one roped-off door that is available to them.

Regardless of the poor sight line to the most interesting part of the room, I took a wide angle shot across the back and captured the seating, bookcases and very ornate door frames.

On a different note, there will likely be a bit of a lag in my photo posting for the next couple of days since my PC died this afternoon and I have to get round to fixing it. Fry’s is a long way from here and my local CompUSA is no more so it will likely be Monday before I can pick up a new power supply and get the machine working again.
