Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot # 35: Government Buildings

"We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us."

-Winston Churchill

For this week's photography assignment, I thought it might be fun to shoot some GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS! LOL. With a camera of course! Silly persons! Now, grab your camera, and show me what your local City Hall looks like, or if you live near the capitol of the state you live in, show me your capitol. Courthouses are good too. Any local GOVERNMENT BUILDING will do.

Extra Credit: Many times there are lovely gardens or public art on display in and around GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS, so, show me what special feature you find in the area around the building you photograph! Statues, murals, Rose gardens... it's all good!

You have until next Sunday evening at 9:00 PM ET, to get your photo, post it to your blog, website or journal, and then comeback here with the direct link to your entry. Please remember, it must be a link specific to this week's photo shoot assignment. No hyperlinks accepted. Also, it would be just nifty if you linked back here to this entry, so other folks can play along with this week's assignment.

Question of the Week: As a photographer, which do you prefer, indoor or outdoor photography?

NOTE: There seems to have been a problem with Ellipsis last week, some folks indicated that at times when they tried to access my blog, multiple IE windows opened unexpectedly. I have done some research, and found out that there is a bug in IE which can cause this to happen, regardless of what website you are at, but just to be sure I have done some template tweaking to try and resolve the problem. Everything seems to be working ok for now, but I want to know if it happens again. Please send me an email if you notice anything like that happening again.

Ok, go be photographers, I will see you in one week with an all new assignment.

You know, I live in an area that is basically one giant government building - Gettysburg - will any shot do? :)

Hi Charley

Sure, of course, snap away! It would be fun to have you join us sometime!

Yeah, Charley, just drive around town, stick your camera out the window and press the shutter button at random intervals. Let's see what you get.

Here you go - it's the Patrick K Hardesty Multi-Service Center. Exciting, huh?
