Here's what a packed house of 38,000+ NASCAR fans at Nashville Superspeedway looks like...the Cup Series Ally 400 produced a great race on track and track ownership provided plenty of other attractions / entertainment for a full day at the race track. It totally lived up to expectation and provided a much needed semblance of normalcy after all the unwelcome 'distractions' of the last year and a half +! If you get the chance to attend next year, I highly recommend...

The Hawaii Capitol building was designed for the people of the State of Hawaii by architects Belt, Lemon, and Lo in association with John Carl Warenecke and Associates. Initial planning began in 1959; ground was broken November 10, 1965. The building was dedicated on March 15, 1969. It is situated on a full city block that joins without interruption (on the makai, or ocean side) the grounds of the lolani Palace. The Capitol building is a structure of steel reinforced concrete & structural steel and it was the intention of the architects that the building's various components read as a sign/symbol relating to Hawaiian natural and cultural phenomena. The following are the five main signs/symbols and their meaning:
‧ Rectangular pool surrounding & enclosing the building -- signifies the Ocean surrounding the islands, inference is to the islands of Hawaii & the surrounding sea
‧ 40 reinforced concrete columns originating from the pond then terminating & supporting the fourth floor ( or the entabulature) -- Coconut Palms, inference is to the relationship of the coconut palm to early Hawaiian economy & culture
‧ Conical shaped ceramic tile legislative chambers -- Volcanoes, inference is to geological formation of the Hawaiian islands
‧ Interior lobby open on the makai (ocean/sea) and mauka (mountain) sides; roof opened to the sky -- Open Society, inference to the acceptance of all aspects of the natural & cultural environment
‧ Reinforced concrete fourth floor overhang -- Inference is to the Greek entabulature and western architectural motivators

The Hawaii State Capitol building is the single most dominant work of public architecture in the State of Hawaii. When the State Capitol building was conceived, it was not meant to be just another modern structure. The building was intended to reflect Hawaii & its people.

To quote from an address given by then Governor, John A. Burns, "The open sea, the open sky, the open doorway, open arms and open hearts - these are the symbols of our Hawaiian heritage. In this great State Capitol there are no doors at the grand entrances which open toward the mountains and toward the sea. There is no roof or dome to separate its vast inner court from the heavens and from the same eternal stars which guided the first voyagers to the primeval beauty of these shores. It is by means of the striking architecture of this new structure that Hawaii cries out to the nations of the Pacific and of the world this message: We are a free people...we are an open society...we welcome all visitors to our island home. We invite all to watch our legislative deliberations; to study our administrative affairs; to see the examples of racial brotherhood in our rich cultures; to view our schools, churches, homes, businesses, our people, our children; to share in our burdens and our self-sorrows as well as our delights and our pleasures. We welcome you! E Komo Mai! Come In! The house is yours!"

The Hawaii State Capitol is also one of many buildings included in the Capital Historic District located in the heart of Downtown Honolulu that was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 1, 1978. All the information above about the State Capitol building was found on the original documents submitted for listing consideration (along with information about the District & all other included buildings) and can be viewed here:

Chania, Crete. It's actually a "vertorama" of about five landscape shots stitched together, plus a little distortion correction. Location on the Flickr map is rather approximate, apologies.

The Keith Sayers Freestyle Motorcross Team put on quite a show at the Nashville Superspeedway during the NASCAR weekend back in June. This guy was doing a burnout while sitting completely stationary and looking right at me. The rear tire during the burnout was relatively slow compared to most I've seen but the balance with the front tire totally locked down was the most impressive part...if you get the chnace check these guys out, they are amazing!! #KSFMX

The First Presbyterian Church in McMinnville, Tennessee (constructed between 1872 and 1876) was nominated and deemed eligible for the National Register of Historic Places under criterion C as a significant local example of vernacular Gothic Revival architecture. The Gothic Revival style was popular in the United States from approximately 1840-1880. Gothic Revival architecture is defined by a pitched roof with an emphasis on verticality, which Augustus Pugin in his explanation on Gothic Revival architecture in churches in 1843, described as an expression of the resurrection through architecture. The style in churches was largely marked by arched windows and center steeples. First Presbyterian Church has representations each of these with the center steeple facade and arched windows that are on both the west and east sides of the building. Above the door is an original concrete plaque in the shape of a shield with the words "C.P. Church Erected AD MDCCCLXXII Dobson and Williamson", which identifies the architects for the church. Within the church building, the Henry Pilcher and Sons organ with approximately 600 pipes & seven stops and dated 1897, is still in perfect working condition. The organ is significant in music and is listed with the Organ Historical Society as an important historical organ. And it is also on the roll of historic pipe organs of the United States.

The First Presbyterian Church represents the best example of vernacular Gothic Revival architecture and is one of the oldest churches in McMinnville and Warren County, Tennessee. It was added to the NRHP on September 13, 1995. All the information above and much more can be found on the original documents submitted for listing consideration and can be viewed here:
