"The Stars At Night..."

Thursday Challenge: "Pattern"

I have a Christmas ornament from last year at the Texas Capitol. It is of this lovely dome. This slightly off-center shot looks much better as a wallpaper on my computer... and much better in it's original size (I drastically reduced it and copied and pasted it into a few programs to get it to fit in my blog). You'll have to forgive the blur. If you stand directly under the star at the capitol building and clap, it echoes through the building like a gunshot. It is really neat. Each year, the capitol puts out a different Texas Christmas ornament.

This year's looks lovely! Hope someone mails me one for Christmas!

God Bless Texas.

Thanks for sharing the nice shot! (and clue us in... how many times did you do the "clap" routine?)

Sadly, Rusty, I have to admit... I only found out about the secret clap echo in the last year of my life. No native Texan should have to fess up to that, though... so I thought I would share it in the blogosphere to help others save face.
