Photo Thursday: Scaffolding on the Colorado State Capitol

I knew before leaving for Denver that the Colorado State Capitol was a dramatic building and I was eager to photograph it. Of course, once we got there, it was immediately obvious that a not-particularly-lovely construction project was underway.
Timing is everything.

  1. Timing definitely is everything, especially with photos! Great shot though.

  2. That's the kind of timing that I have! My husband thinks that I should do a post on all the landmarks that we have seen covered in scaffolding!

    1. Don't I know. . . when I went to Europe in college we joked that we were on the great monuments of Europe in scaffolding tour. Everything seemed to be hidden under scaffolding, from Big Ben in London to St. Basil's in Moscow. Your husband might be on to something though. . . .

  3. I hate it when that happens! Construction or cleaning is always taking place on the old buildings in Europe. Nice shot anyways :)

  4. I'd love to know how some of you feel about that fancy covering they use in Europe now that looks like the part of the building being worked on. Sometimes it's hard to tell whether it is real or not.

  7. I think it's still a pretty good shot. Challenging circumstances encourage creativity, or at least help us better appreciate the times when the everything comes together perfectly.

    1. I've been thinking that I need to embrace scaffolding and learn to find the beauty in it like I did when they were working on my office! http://thetravelgal.blogspot.com/2009/07/my-office-building.html
