Yesterday, "Intrepid Photographer" made the two-mile journey across the Delaware River to New Jersey's State Capitol, Trenton. Frequently I've photographed the back of this magnificent building from across the River. This is its front.
The New Jersey State House is the second oldest building of state government in the nation. It's magnificent gold leaf dome can just barely be seen from this viewpoint.
The landing geese were photographed from the rear of the building, where they were getting ready to have a swim.
New Jersey was one of the original Colonies to "BELONG" to the new Union.
