The Laws of Nature

Some people take beautiful landscape photographs - of a dramatic suns singing one last crescendo as they drop behind a stark mountain range or a crashing sea while sparkling off the pale blue water.  I'm not that photographer.  My interest lies in people.  Capturing expressions, emotions, life. 

That's not to say I don't like buildings.  They have a personality all their own and speak their own language.

Here the Washington capitol building in Olympia, the last capitol dome to be built in the US, stands monumentally over a stark fall campus - its orderly structure conflicting with nature's seemingly disorganized lines - one built to create law, one that heeds only its own.
