Six Words and Sunday Shadows June 21-22, 2014

Happy Summer Solstice-the longest day!
We are here in Sacramento California for
a quick visit. Here are some photos from yesterday

Disappearing Marguerita Pizza  June 20, 2014 


 Capitol Rotunda  June 20, 2014


 Women's Room Selfie  June 20, 2014


Statue of Columbus and Queen Isabella
Below Capitol Rotunda   June 20, 2014

Yesterday we combined family business
with a special and personalized tour of the 
restored Capitol building. My dad was
the architect for this Restoration project.
It was the cherry on top of his career.
It's a gorgeous building.

Cheers and enjoy this long sunny day!
Unless, of course, if you are living in the
Southern Hemisphere - then today is your
shortest day! Either way - have fun and smile!

Wow, you got spammed and then some.

I love the capitol building. I didn't know your father was the architect for the restoration. Wow, that' impressive indeed.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs. :)

The one and only time I visited the state capitol was on a field trip in the fifth grade. I remember it being really exciting. I should plan another visit.

I once loved a rotunda. And I think she had a soft spot for me, too. But it didn't work out. She found another. After that, I felt like one hand of a clock.

That building looks amazing! Also, i like the shadows of the utensils in the first shot.

When I first moved to my husband's town, he showed the state capitol off to me. Then this previous year, I got to experience it again but through the eyes of my students. Most of them knew about the elevator and the view from the top, but not so much about the paintings and statues. Both visits were interesting experiences. :-)

PS I love the photos of the disappearing Margherita Pizza and the selfie!

I think your disappearing pizza goes with my remnants of sopapilla! That rotunda is gorgeous. Here' to the Roman's for giving us that legacy!
