This is the lobby of the Louisiana State Capitol building. It’s very pretty in a gaudy, gold-leaf and marble sort of way. There are statues and murals. There is a bronze relief map of Lousiana in the floor (inside that circle railing in the center). And beyond the double doors in the distance is one of the chambers of one of the two houses of the legislature. The other would be behind me.
This photo really doesn’t do it justice (at all), but I felt like I needed to share this one.
