a capital christmas.

a nighttime field trip to the capital christmas tree.


i stopped by the capital building on my way home from a wedding tonight – the very last wedding on 2008. i was feeling elated, nostalgic and a little adventurous, so when i noticed the newly lit tree in front of the capital, i decided to pull over and snap a few shots. it was so quiet and beautiful – a few others stood in silence and awe, and i clicked a few frames trying to ignore the freezing temperature! the colors were really spectacular and i absolutely *love* the way the lights look when pushed out of focus…

happy, dreamy, sparkly holidays to everyone!
