Photographer's Note

Another in my ongoing project to visit and photograph all 50 US state capitol buildings. This series is from Annapolis, the capital city of Maryland.

I'll end my Maryland series with this shot, as it incorporates subjects from several of my other Annapolis shots. You have the wooden dome of the State House itself, of course, but also Ego Alley, this innermost part of Annapolis' harbor; the boat I posted a shot of a while back is also prominently featured here. At the far end of Ego Alley here you can just make out the Alex Haley/Kunta Kinte statue that was the subject of a previous shot.

This shot was taken just after sunrise on an already scorchingly hot Maryland day; it was around 6am when I took this, yet the temperature was already in the low 80s F (almost 30c), and deeply humid. The shot itself looks nice and cool, however, due to the water and the bright pastels of the row houses at the end of Ego Alley.
