Been working on this film about Thomas Cole for, like, ever and its nearing the end point.

In making it, it took us on trip to Columbus to photograph the Ohio Statehouse.  Cole was the first architect on the building in 1839.

On the outside, it's an austere Greek Revival structure -in keeping with the 19th Century republic's national identity.

The interior is a bit more lavish.

Which makes you think about the difference between how politicians present themselves, and what they think of themselves.

They do have a plaque to commemorate James Thurber who was a statehouse reporter before making it big in The New Yorker.

The cupola with a domed glass ceiling is something to behold.  I'm not sure what images we're using in the film, so I'm going to horde all the nice photos of it.
