Because of security requirements, there was a long wait to get into the courthouse. I occupied my time by getting a few shots of the exterior, including the following.
This is actually a sharp image, but because of the porousness of the stone/concrete, the image appears very grainy. A nice effect, I thought.
Once I got through security, the foyer area was consistent with the drab exterior. Here is a shot that I kept for its semi-abstract lines.
But the transformation occurred when I got to the central atrium, which I understand had been redone some years ago. Unfortunately, by the time I had gotten through security, I had run short of time and could only spend a few minutes in the atrium area. Here are a couple of the shots that I took.
I am guessing that there were a lot more opportunities had I been able to spend more time exploring. Hopefully, next year.
