Wikipedia Description: Maryland State House
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Maryland State House is located in Annapolis and is the oldest state capitol in continuous legislative use, dating to 1772. It houses the Maryland General Assembly. The capitol has the distinction of being topped by the largest wooden dome built without nails in the nation. The current building, which was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1968 is the third statehouse to stand on the site. The building is administered by the State House Trust, which was created in 1969.
Construction began in 1772 and was not completed until 1779 due to the ongoing Revolutionary War. The statehouse was designed by Joseph Horatio Anderson, who was a noted architect of the time. The building is of brick construction in the middle of State Circle. The building is designed in the popular Georgian style of the day.

A cornice is topped by another pediment and the sloping roof gives way for a central drum atop which rests a dome. The large dome is topped by a balustraded balcony, another drum and a lantern capped by a lightning rod. The rod was constructed and grounded accordingly to the direct specifications of the inventor, Benjamin Franklin. The dome of the statehouse is depicted on the Maryland state quarter.
In the rotunda is a replica of the USS Maryland (1799). Large Corinthian columns support the arches bracing the large dome above. A balustrade lines the second floor balcony.

2003 photos: Equipment this year: I decided my Epson digital camera wasn't quite enough for what I wanted. Since I already had Compact Flash chips for it, I had to find another camera which used CF chips. That brought me to buy the Fujifilm S602 Zoom in March 2003. A great digital camera, I used it exclusively for an entire year.
Trips this year: Three-week trip this year out west, mostly in Utah.
Number of photos taken this year: 68,000.
