Photography is definitely a stress reducer. That’s what brought Marlene and I out on a Sunday morning. Concentrating on shooting takes your mind off various stressors and allows a couple of buddies to talk it out.
Fortunately, Marlene knows Sacramento City because I took the wrong freeway and truly didn’t know where we were when I exited. All I knew was that this wasn’t where we were headed! We decided to just drive and find neat things to shoot. We eventually found our way to the iconic Tower Theater, out last stop for the day. I’m saving that for another post because I want to focus on it.
This Sunday morning was fun, sometimes challenging because of harsh lighting or total clouds, but fun. I think for both of us, photography is an escape. Whether for just a couple of hours or a full day, it takes us away, gets us concentrating on the process of shooting, and challenges our minds. It’s also taught me what wonderful places we have right here.
Yes, this past Sunday was funday.
Confession: I thought this was a water tower, but I can’t find it on the internet. It’s located close to the fire department.
The Libby, McNeil and Libby Fruit and Vegetable Cannery was a cannery operated in Sacramento, California by Libby, McNeil, and Libby. The building is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
A different slant on the can!

More puddle shooting captured this neat truck.
This is the McClatchy Library. Located in the middle of a residential area, it may have been a large home at one point.
Book return boxes are located along side of the driveway.

Red doors just get my attention.
So do bright yellow chairs and pumpkins!
We had lunch at Jamba Juice before walking over to the Tower Theater.
