Anyone can shoot the state capitol building in its entirety. Frankly, anyone can shoot a photograph like this, but they rarely do. Why? Likely the instinctive thought process where the sum is greater than its parts, or part in this case.
What I enjoy about these types of photos is the ability to see the architectural details that are difficult to see from ground level. With the building completed between 1861 and 1874, some parts of the building are now over 150 years old.
