Spectators gather on the mid floors of the Missouri State Capitol and look down onto the main floor where people celebrate the election of their favorite candidate. On night of the “Governor’s Ball” the Capitol is alive with people visiting their representative’s office, celebrating and exploring the vast caverns of the building.
The photo was taken with a Nikon COOLPIX S9700
Inauguration day in the Missouri State Capitol. As music plays in the rotunda all of the offices are staffed and full of people from both parties. Truly and exciting time to visit and open to anyone who wants to attend. This is a hand held photo taken at 1/10th of a second, f3.5, 18mm, ISO 2000. Two things that make this work are the anti-shake mode in the lens and the ability of the Nikon D7100 to handle low light situations well.

When I walked into Missouri’s State Capitol this window in the rotunda caught my attention. These beautiful buildings are interesting to explore for their architecture, art and history.
