This week’s challenge was most timely for me since I had several recently captured images that I thought would be right for the purpose. These pictures were taken at the State Capitol building in Salt Lake City, Utah.
One thing I miss since I switched to a digital camera is my old Minolta wide angle lens. I can’t afford to spring for a fancy new one for my current camera so now I find that I am forced to take pictures from a slightly different angle instead of perhaps capturing the whole image as I would like.
In a way, that’s a good thing because now I find myself taking a closer look at the subject and spending more time exploring my options.

I’ve missed a couple of these challenges so I hope I can make up for it by sharing a few pictures that I captured recently during our visit to Utah. This week’s Photo Challenge set by Kristin Snow at The Daily Post is Change.
Change is all around us. It can happen in the blink of an eye or sometimes over long periods of time. The Great Salt Lake in Utah is the largest salt-water lake in the Western Hemisphere and in an average year covers 1,700 square miles.
It is part of what was once, in prehistoric times, Lake Bonneville, which covered most of western Utah. Looking at the lake from Antelope Island one can easily imagine the waters spreading out as far as the eye could see, but over the centuries the scene has changed and now they have greatly diminished due to evaporation, leaving large tracts of salt residue along the shores. How much will this landscape change in the years to come?
