Wyoming State Legislature
Alone in the Senate
While I was feature hunting today, I stopped by the Wyoming State Capitol to photograph renovations taking place on the South entrance. I ended up inside looking for a window to shoot out of downwards. I noticed that the Senate gallery door was open so I stepped inside to see if maybe a janitor might be inside. Instead, I spotted one of the senators working quietly at his desk.
Wyoming Legislature ends session
Today was the last day of the 2011 session of the 61st Wyoming Legislature. Covering the legislature twice a week has really become part of my weekly routine since I started at the paper here in January so it will be a bit weird not having to dress up in a suit. It was kind of a weird mood among the legislators today. It kind of seemed like the last day of elementary school. Everyone was cleaning out desks. I kept wondering if I’d spot someone signing a yearbook.
