George’s Knobs


George Washington door knob at the Washington State Capitol building

One of the things that I love about the Washington State Capitol building is the access that the public has to the building. With the exception of things like offices, the building is open to the public and you are encouraged to explore and enjoy everything that the building has to offer. On of the things that it does have to offer is an incredible amount of architectural detail, not only in the massive amounts of marble that lines the walls and floors, but down to the smaller thighs such as the door knobs that feature George Washington himself.

When you are in a building that has so many large scale things to take in, it is quite easy to miss the small details such as these door knobs.  This image is from this month’s #WE35 expedition and I am grateful to the expedition for having it force me to slow down and not only find and photograph those small details, but to also enjoy them.

I will be posting more images from this months expedition here on the blog, but all of the images, including the contact sheet, are in my #WE35 gallery.  You can get there by navigating to my Projects gallery and selecting WE35, or by simply clicking here.
