Ye Olde Traine Statione

I suppose it is not old enough to denote the medieval “e” on the end… This was shot in Old Sacramento near the train museum.

I’ll Meet You at the Train Station

This is the old train station in Sacramento. I thought this one turned out rather well!

Engine House

This is part of the old Union Pacific complex in Sacramento, California. They had a bunch of old trains there and I kept running into old crotchety engineers in overalls that didn’t like the look of me our my new-fangled camera.

Little Italy

This was taken in North Beach, the Italian section of San Francisco. I thought this cool corner spot was a lot like a smaller version of the Flatiron building in New York. That reminds me… I have a cool shot of that I need to find and upload. I didn’t stop in this cafe below… but it looked like a nice place to hang out.

Union Station Classic

Union Pacific had a lot of old train cars at a classic train station in Old Sacramento. This one turned out really interesting with the sun burning above the depot and the old yellow passenger car.

San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate

The weather in San Francisco was not the most cooperative for every kind of picture I wanted to take, but I did come away with a few interesting ones. I went a little Orton on this one, but I like the the results and the colorful glowing houses dotting the coast.

Old Sacramento and the Teetering Wells Fargo Building

I walked around rustic old Sacramento with my mom and grabbed a bunch of shots. The old Wells Fargo building is below. I don’t know how much of the facade is original, but it looks like it to me.

San Francisco Flyby in HDR

Whenever I shoot San Francisco, I think it JUST might be the very last shot before the big one hits. They say they pyramidal Transamerica building is fairly earthquake-proof, but I don’t really believe it.

I think if there was a big one, I would just climb out the window and slide down the outside, just in case. That seems like a pretty solid plan.

I Heart San Francisco (and MyBlogLog too)

I have just joined MyBlogLog, so feel free to click here to join my community.

I had to spend about $300 in order to pay all the homeless people to get out of the way of this shot, but I think it was well worth it.

I like how cities are doing this artistic stuff and contracting with local artists. I’m not a fan of tax-supported public art, however. I heard that in Iceland that if you are a recognized, but unemployed artist, that the government will actually give you a regular stipend. Anyway, I digress.

Each corner of Union Square here in San Francisco had some uniquely painted heart. I thought this one was the coolest with the sky that day, so I had to grab a shot.
