I spent a few hours near our State Capitol today.
My destination was the State Library and Archives building, a great place for research.
But this fence distracted me.
And so did the sunlight on the capitol dome.
I couldn't pass up getting a close-up of the Goddess of Liberty.
This cowboy stood nearby... I couldn't leave him out.
...or this one keeping him company, enjoying the beautiful morning.
Finally, I made it to the Library building.
But was distracted again by this wonderful scent...
...Japanese ligustrum. Heavenly!
Sam Houston reminded me to focus on my goal, and I finally made it into the library.
