    Near Sacramento

    Anybody have a particular favorite place to shoot near Sacramento? I know it is a little on the podunk side and nobody actually lives here but I'm getting bored with the river between my apartment and Sac State and I'm looking for places that would be worth the bike ride.

    I have enjoyed photographing along the levees near Rio Vista.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Old town is good I never think about it now that I moved from downtown to the east side of Sacramento. Folsom sure would be a long bike ride but I guess if I'm going out there for brewing supplies anyways I might as well get some shots (I do have a car I just hate to drive).

    also maybe a long bike ride, but the old bridges and levees along the Yolo bypass north of town around the airport are interesting subjects. More so after a good rain, does your bike have fenders?

    Capitol park.. Effie-Yaw nature center.. K-street mall.. anywhere on the american river bike trail.. Davis Arboretum.. river delta..

    Timing is everything in Sac.. halloween in oldtown is fun, sorry if you missed it. Right now try to concentrate on city/landscape right after a rainstorm. When it is dull and grey go shoot people, er, take photos of people.

    That place is awful the employees there are downright rude the only day that they might have decent people is Sunday and that is if they decide to be open (they randomly close the store for no reason.) I'll stick to the brew shop in Folsom.
