Photographer's Note

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

I've written a lot about Nashville already in my posts on the Nashville music scene, so I'll spare you the long discussion on this one. This is the State Capitol in Nashville; sitting atop Capitol Hill, it can be seen from most parts of the city.

It's a building very much in the Greek Revivalist style, looking not unlike a classical Greek temple. It is one of only a few capitols without a dome; instead it has a small cupola or lantern. I was lucky to be able to visit the capitol three days during the trip; this first, I caught a beautiful sunset reflected off the side of the building.
