Yesterday I photographed preparations at the State Capitol for today's Legislative opening.  Here's my favorite image that didn't make it in our print or online gallery of House Speaker Joseph Souki as he prepped for today's speech.

It took a while for Speaker Souki to get used to me being there, and as he paced near the podium, I noticed that the teleprompter cast a nearly perfect reflection of him.  I got down and shot upwards with a wide angle as he paced to get the interstellar look of the House chamber lights and the earthly brown colors of the ceiling.
