Lit Joe’s

Lit Joe's

This is another Art Deco building along Del Paso Boulevard in Sacramento. Lit Joe’s maybe a all night diner. I had breakfast there while taking a break from photographing. Nice friendly people who either get up early or who stay up all night. Lit Joe’s has been there since the 1954. Their sign on the roof rotates but not in a complete circle. It rotates part way, stops goes back part way and the stops again rotates back not the same distance . I had to wait until is was aligned correctly before taking the photo.

Bowling

Bowling

I went to my brother-in-law’s in Sacramento to visit and to take photos of the North Sacramento area. This picture of the bowling alley is on Del Paso Boulevard. The area has a number of art deco buildings. Taken at about 7:00 in the morning, the light had a differs quality. The pigeons were a problem by sitting on the sign and flying at the wrong time. They were roosting inside the red bowling sign under the entrance way.

Climbing Trees

Climbing Trees

This is the second photo on climbing and trimming trees. The trees around my daughter’s condo were being trimmed this morning by Atlas Tree and Landscape. One of the climbers, Alberto was in the tree right behind the condo. Although he appeared to be in danger, he was always roped in and safe.

The trees around my daughter’s condo were being trimmed this morning by Atlas Tree and Landscape. One of the climbers, Alberto was in the tree right behind the condo. Although he appeared to be in danger, he was always roped in and safe.

I wish the pictures were clearer but they were taken through the screen on the window.

Alberto and the crew he worked with did an excellent job. Below is a link to his company’s website.

Lines and Contrasts

Lines and Contrasts

This fascinated me because of the lines and contrasting material.

Yellow Blue Red

Yellow Blue Red

Taken at a nearby festival. This couple asking questions of the person at the Information booth seemed to be dressed in two of the three primary colors. The yellow flowers completed the trio of primary colors. I don’t often find this combination in street photography

Grey and Blond

Grey and Blond

Taken at a nearby festival. There were many interesting animals at the festival. This is a close up of a draft horse. There were two horses there. I believe that they are called a Stonewall Draft horse.

Red White Blue Yellow

red white blue yellow color Kaiser-72dpi

Taken at the entrance to Kaiser Permanente Health Center in Pleasanton California. This sidewalk, street and curb combination caught my eye this morning. I want back later to take about 10 photos from different angles. This is a real advantage when not shooting street photography

Green on Hand

Green on Hand

Taken at a nearby festival. This is the hand of a wood carver. He carves small pieces of wood into bird wings. His hands indicate that he has been at this for quite sometime.

Red & Blond

Red & Blond

Taken at a nearby festival. This was one of those chance shots that seemed to work. I did some cropping as I wanted a more focused photo.

Red Meat

Red Meat

Taken at a nearby festival. These big hunks of meat were barbecuing. An earlier photo uploaded my blog showed a person enjoying huge mouthfuls of cooked meat. He seemed to be enjoying it.

Running Red

Running Red

Taken at a nearby festival. This was one of many steam engines that were at this festival. They popped, snorted and whirled.

Tan, Black and Reflection

Tan, Black and Reflection

Taken at a nearby festival. Hats of different styles and colors seemed to worn with abandonment at the festival. This one caught my eye first because of its weave and then the reflection in his glasses.

Red, Green, Yellow

Red, Green, Yellow

Taken and eaten at a nearby festival. These bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches were cooking on a large grill. The double decker sandwiches were very good. Plus they were made from local products.

Rainbow Hoola Hoops

Rainbow Hoola Hoops

Taken at a nearby festival. There were colors everywhere at this festival, including spinning ones. These were waiting for someone to try to keep them spinning above waist level.
