Tour Guide – Olympia, WA in Black and White

Labeling this post a “tour guide” might bit of a stretch as I’ve left out all the touristy bits about landmarks, photo-ops and directions but it fits the theme of the weekly photo challenge and it’s been years since I spent time in our State’s Capital so when we took Ryan to Olympia to begin his week as a Senate Page I made sure to arrive early enough to wander around and take a few pictures.

The capital complex is a beautiful place, full of interesting history and architecture and one day I might write a more traditional post walking us through those points but today I’ll share some small snapshots of little vignettes that spoke to me.

    1. Thanks Carrie! That’s one of the reasons I like black and white too. The emphasis shift from daily life views you might look past on your way down the street to something you stop and reconsider because the image isn’t framed in a way that you absorb automatically.

    1. Thanks so much for the nice comments and Twitter share, Mabel. 🙂 Ryan had a wonderful time as a Page and learned a lot about how our government really functions on a State level.
