Captured: Inside the U.S. Capitol

Inside the U.S. Capitol

My little Kodak EasyShare Z730 is a respectable point-and-shoot digital camera. Even though I moved on to Canon PowerShot digicams several years ago, at first shooting an S80 donated by reader Lone Primate, and now a sublime S95, I still get out my Z730 from time to time. It’s a wonderful companion on a nature walk, as it captures color better than either of my Canons.

This photo is from my family’s Washington, D.C., trip in 2009. We toured the U.S. Capitol and I took this photo inside. The Z730 did all right in the available light, and did a really nice job of capturing color and detail. Unfortunately, everything inside that dome was blown out. So I just brought the image into Photoshop to blunt the effect.

    But you scared me with that title. These days, it would normally mean tasered, tortured, and shipped to Gitmo. :-)

      You remind me of the time I was wanted by the FBI. I told that story here before; maybe it’s time to dust it off and run it again.

    I guess it show how ingrained photography is in me that I didn’t think of the other meaning of captured until someone commented about it. Glad they are still letting people take pictures inside the Capital.

      Hunh. I’d never occurred to me that photography might be restricted.
