Great stuff as usual.

Sacramento must've been filled with cranes in 1926..

Sacramento's rich urban fabric is undeniable. Unfortunately it's the only major California city I haven't been to. Too bad not many people outside Sac see it as a neat, urban city, I assume just because it's overshadowed due to the fact it's in California. Anyway, as a political junkie, I think I'd be in heaven there. Sac is surely on my list of places to visit. Thank you very much.

I have such nostalgia from my days living in Sacramento and working downtown. I echo the comments made about what a great (and under appreciated) city it is. Thanks for a wonderful thread!

Nice series. Your photos have really matured. Great symmetry in a lot of your photos. The Capitol is looking good.

Wow, that was a truly amazing set. That picture of the Wells Fargo Lobby brings back memories of the 400 Capitol Mall building. I spent a lot of time in that building a long time ago. Outstanding job!

Great Set, innov8!

The Gunthers Ice Cream shot is my favorite!

When are you going take some shots of the new airport? There is a thread under Transportation for the Sacramento Airport Expansion, we could sure use some quality shots from you.

Wow!

Nice job, Sacramento is no doubt a beautiful city, I was impressed the few times I visited. I like this city, but don't ask me that when it comes to the LA Lakers, and the Sacramento Queens, oops I meant Kings. (lol)

Geographically/outdoors speaking, Sacramento is one (or may be the most) of the most under rated metros in the country. 2 hours to the sea, 2 hours to the sierras, some great stuff in between, great climate, sunshine, not too dry and definitely not isolated..though I'm sure very hot by coastal California standards. Unfortunately I didn't spend any quality time around town last time I came through, I was beat feeting for my hotel in SF after not showering in the Sierras and Nevada for several days (had to wear a down coat in the nevada mountains high above the desert, freaking awesome!). Thanks for sharing!

If you like politics, the only place to stay is the Citizen Hotel. Totally politically themed throughout.
