Take a look at these interesting photographs taken by Thad Alton of the Topeka Capital Journal showing the continuing renovations to the state capitol building.

The shiny reflection atop the Kansas Capitol is light at the end of the tunnel. Cladding the four wings and dome in copper is progressing at a pace that the $300 million-plus, decade-long renovation of the Topeka landmark is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
