This is a shot from the top of State Street facing the Capitol Building. The statue, Miss Forward, is the personnification of the state motto "Forward." The official Miss Forward is gilded and rests atop the Capitol Dome, which is one of the most photographed sights in Madison. Nearly every time I am downtown, I see someone standing in the middle of State Street, taking a picture of the Capitol. I was not standing in the middle of State Street, as I fear being hit by a city bus or a speed demon bicyclist (with few exceptions, cars are banned on State Street).
