A vertical panorama — neat idea.

This is the building that, just hours before, had been crowded by thousands of people hoping to get into the Texas Senate Chamber to see Sen. Wendy Davis’s filibuster.

Star on the dome of the Texas State Capitol; a similar star is five very long stories below, on the floor.

Look carefully, and you can see that the guides in the Capitol don’t lie — the star on the dome reflects the star on the floor (or vice versa).

Can you get a similar shot of the rotunda of your state capitol? Would you do it and send it in, or post it and give us the link?
