Here's a couple of new city photo threads by myself. I know a few of you have
ventured over to the My City Photo's section to view, but for those who haven't... please take a peak.

Thank you Majin… I appreciate everyone’s supportive comments

My shots show up from time to time in a few local publications and there are
also a few organizations and business that have also bought some of my
photos. I’m working on taking it to the next level, thanks again.

I graduated from Sacramento Country Day in 03 and took photos for the school newspaper all 4 years. Every year we had to do a story on the progress of the new campus in Folsom. Basically, in 2001 GenCorp Inc. gave us 80 acres, which sits in the 30,000 acres-plus of oak grasslands that run south of Highway 50 from Folsom to Rancho Murieta.

In any case, this is a picture I took back in 2001, and, well, it hasn't changed much since then. I have much better photos, but I'm bored at home, and this was the only one of Sacramento I could find. I'll keep digging.

Send them down to South Sac to "deal with" all the gangs down there! Then, rebuild all the mental institutions (under a differnent name to be more humane) and put the homeless in there! Sacramento (and most cities) would be a better place.

Ouch!!!
Funny, but ouch!
Arbeit Mach Frei is much better sounding..... (Same thing, only in the original language.)

Or maybe we could put that saying on the Statue of Liberty, "Give us your tired..."

Ouch

I assume you mean the homeless that have mental problems and who happen to be on the streets?

From what I have heard, the majority of chronic homeless in Sacramento are mentally ill. Also, someone recently pointed out that we spend all this money to house and feed and care for criminals; but, we don't spend the money necessary to take care of the homeless...especially those that have mental illnesses. It's a sad commentary on our society. We spend how many millions more trying to teach people a lesson than we spend for those who may not be able to take care of themselves?

neuhickman, if what you are advocating is providing housing for the homeless (not locked institutions, but housing) then I take back my remark. The solution to homelessness IS housing, but that's a solution that the free market can't provide.

Many of the chronic homeless are mentally ill, but "chronic homeless" only applies to about 10% of the homeless population: people who have been homeless a year or more, or who become homeless several times in a period of a couple of years.

"Housing first" programs target the chronic homeless by getting them into housing before addressing other problems--because, once the person is housed, those problems become MUCH easier to treat. Any problem a person might have becomes much worse on the street. As I have mentioned here before, in other cities (like Denver) they have found that providing "housing first" programs and case-management followup actually costs a great deal less than the emergency services (jail, emergency rooms, psych wards, detox) that they would have used if still on the street. Add to the fiscal benefit the community benefit of fewer homeless on the street and the social benefit of helping some of society's most miserable become, at least, more stable (and sometimes, back into productive members of society) and you've got a real option--a solution that works. It's not particularly cheap, and it's not particularly easy, but homelessness isn't a simple problem and it doesn't come with a simple answer.

Enough moralizing! More Sacramento photos!




Some photos I took last year on a tour of Globe Mills with my cheap phone camera. Hopefully I'll get to take some "after" shots soon.

I was helping a friend from work paint some houses a week or 2 ago and noticed that there are some awesome views of the skyline, and the entire valley from the cameron park el dorado hills area. I would of taken a picture but all I had was my camera phone. Somebody with a really bad ass camera could take a shot and it would be amazing. Just go to one of the side roads off 50 and take some, and some of the deeper roads into the hills in the area.
