Louisiana State Capitol

Louisiana State Capitol in Baton Rouge, construction finished in 1932. The building was brought on by Huey P. Long, arguably Louisiana’s most influential governor. Two years later after its opening, Governor Long would be assassinated by Dr. Carl Weiss, the son-in-law of court rival Judge Pavey.

The grounds around the capitol are wide open and seem to have hundreds of great photo spots. It was terribly hot this day and we were just bringing the kids to visit in the middle of a summer day so I took this one in the shade. From a comfortable bench 🙂

For processing, this was done in Lightroom with a vintage cross-processing style.
