as most of you know, i am usually on the darkside gallery, or off topics..
i rarely post here, 'cause truth be told, not really up to par...

but i liked these, and wanted to share...:hugs:

i was gonna ask jonmikal why he didnt tell us the capitol was being "fixed".. our state capitol, Little Rock Arkansas, is build just like the nations capitol... just smaller...in some movie, they used ours to blow up the nations capitol..

then a friend of mine saw this pic and said, you should tell them we even put "bob-war" around our capitol... keeps the goats from jumping out..!!
(actually, they are cleaning it....)

this is bill clintons first capitol ....:heart: oh, and i know the horizon is tilted.....in real life its not...but i think i look at things like a dog, and tilt my head....so.. i will work on it..sorry...

this is the vietnam vet memorial at our capitol...

this guy looked so real, i couldnt quit looking at him, and all his detail...
i ask forgivness for not really doing him justice...
but i imagine vietnam vets never have really gotten justice...

hey ravenbird, these are real cool..... the second is a beauty... caught the light well in that one, the last has a great pov too. you should post here more often raven, its not so bad is it..... you can scurry off to the darkside gallery real fast from here...... its painless. (or maybe painful's best for you, huh?!)

See ... they tell people they're cleaning the dome, but in reality, since we started a special session yesterday, they've wrapped the Capital in bobwar to keep the legislators IN!

Nice shots, girlie ... hooah! :heart:

Me, make fun of your, ummm, speech impediment? No way, eh?

("So, do people come from a-far to see the building, or do they make sure the flames are doused first?" )
