I had some time to be able to walk from my hotel to the State Capitol on my Utah trip. Oh man, they are not kidding when they say Capitol Hill.
The capitol building itself is quite beautiful, but really does look similar to many other state capitol buildings across the nation.
What’s neat here is that there’s a lot of wide open space around the building.
Photo Tip: Get pictures of the same building from multiple angles. I got one straight on and one from the side.
There was also this other statue on the grounds. I neglected to look at the plaque, so I’m not sure what it is.
Photo Tip: Don’t forget the plaques. Your memory isn’t that good.
From the side of that statue, I was able to get both the statue and the building in the same shot.
Photo Tip: Incorporate two subjects in the same photo to provide context.
This time I did manage to get a photo of the plaque explaining the significance behind all the beehives I had seen around town.
The stairs leading up to the capitol building had two giant beehives on the sides. I managed to get a detail shot on one of them.
Photo Tip: Experiment with getting up close.
