This view was taken from the lobby of the capitol building in Helena, Montana (USA). Jimmy had to go there to get his contractor’s license, so Andrew and I tagged along. I expected Andrew to be bored because there didn’t seem to be much there to attract a two year old, but he loved the art and architecture and insisted that we climb to the third floor so he could see the stained glass windows.

This building was designed in 1887 by Charles Emlen Bell and John Hackett Kent. The original design, by George R. Mann was rejected for being too costly. It was later used for the capitol of Arkansas. The building was constructed with dolomitic limestone and granite and has the Greek neoclassical style. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Wonderful capture, rocamiadesign, and great photographer’s notes. Enjoyed the education . :)

  • Thank you! I learned a lot by researching. We had never visited Helena before and were surprised by all the beautiful architecture.

    I’m so glad; one of the wondeful things about photography is how it not only is a feast to our eyes, but our minds as well; becoming more aquainted and knowledgable about places, things, cultures, etc. we otherwise would never have an opportunity to “experience.” Again, very nice capture. :)
