Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece


Masterpiece. No matter where you are (and where you’ve been), I’m certain you’ve stumbled upon something extraordinary: a place that blows your mind; a work of art or object that speaks to you; or even a location or scene that’s special, unusual, or even magical in some way.

When I read this and thought about it for a few minutes, I realized that I didn’t have to look to some foreign work of architecture to find beauty, but rather, needed only to look in my own back yard.  Our South Carolina State House, in Columbia, is a beautiful masterpiece.  Built in 1854 and completed in 1903, it was eventually designated a National Historic Landmark.  Today, it adorns six bronze stars, representing the places where it was hit with shells from General Sherman’s cannons during the Civil War.
