The Texas State Capitol is beautiful, it’s worth a trip just to see the grounds around the building! A mock Statue of Liberty, a circle of creepy children statues, and a pretty rose garden are among the attractions that should appeal to any lomographer!
Everything’s bigger in Texas – that’s the truth! With a Capitol building larger than that of the nation’s capitol, we’ve proven that point. The Texas State Capitol is a great place to visit if you’re a history buff, but its grounds and garden make it a treat for Lomographers everywhere!
My favorite statue on the Capitol grounds is Pioneer Woman, but there’s a multitude of other statues to satisfy your shutter button. Highlights include the model Statue of Liberty and the circle of creepy children statues. There’s statues of cowboys and confederate soldiers lurking about. The grounds also have a fair share of canons, large and small! On any given day, you might catch an exciting protest, too.
The rose garden in the back is really amazing in the spring, and they take very good care of it throughout the summer, as well. Even in the heat of June, the blossoms remain vibrant. It’s a nice place to go if you’re a fan of your Diana close-up lens!
If you plan on visiting Austin, make sure to take the time to visit the Capitol Building on Congress Avenue! It’s a wonderful spot for snapping some photographs and it’s only about a block away from the Lomography Gallery Store Austin!
