Hey Tom - Just a short update. We were through Topeka a couple of weeks ago, and sure 'nough, they'd cleaned the whole dome. All nice and coppery now. Guess they figured making something that was beautiful, just another copper topped building. Oh well.

Hi Joan - I've been trying and trying to thank you for your comments, and for some reason they never loaded. Hope it will this time. As far as the building, it is beautiful. Limestone is very common around Kansas, and has been used a lot in buildings and homes.

Great lighting again, Don! Nice accent on the shadows and golden color!

Thank you so much Steve. It is in fact beautiful, and built entirely of native limestone.

That is a very spectacular building even with scaffolding Don

Hey JC. Thank you Sir. I hate to even imagine what it took to erect all th at scaffolding. It's all the way to the ground in the front, but couldn't get much of a decent shot of it. Sky was all washed out from that perspective, but I might post one anyhow, just to show the extent of it.

Thanks a million Tom. I have no idea what they are doing, and just found out today that it's been going on for a year. We're a couple hundred miles west of Topeka, and don't get up that way much. I have a few of the front of the building that show the extent of the scaffolding, but the sky is totally washed out. The time of day wasn't doing me any favors, and we couldn't stay around. I don't think they're doing anything like removing the patina. At least I hope not. Thank you for the Feature. That's really cool, and much appreciated.

Well Sir, I reckon enough time has passed that maybe I'd best get around to thanking you. So sorry to be so long.
