Unfinished building

At the southeast corner of State and Lake
there's this odd little building that looks almost as if
somebody began building an art deco office block,
got to the third floor and ran out of imagination, money and willpower
all at the same time.

An oracular voice speaks truth via the marquee of the Orpheum

A Morning Walk

With the sun still low in the morning sky,
the capital building catches the light in different ways ...

The northeast entrance catches the muted golden reflection
off the windows of the building across the street.

The north portico is tinted a subtle shade of aqua,
again a reflection off the windows on the other side of Mifflin St.

The northwest entrance is still in shade,
but the sunlight has caught the leaves on the trees across the lawn.
