Architectural Images - serving Sacramento - Roseville - Northern California and beyond

Above: Most famous cat in Las Vegas (photographed May 2013)

Above: Roseville's famous antique locomotive located on historic Vernon Street. (Formerly located at the fairgrounds, painstakingly moved to Vernon Street by a group of train hobbyist volunteers.) One of Doug's favorite architectural images, and used on Doug's January 2013 business cards.


 Above: elegant hotel hallway, Doug used ultra-wide-angle 10mm lens for this shot.


Above: Breathtaking art structure on the grounds of Adventure Christian Church in Roseville, CA. The shape reminds me of the iconic moon monollith from the movie "2001, a Space Odyssey" crossed with a Cray Supercomputer. These structures have engraved scriptures from both Old and New Testaments.

I photographed the above scene at dusk, looking westward toward Sacramento's skyline (the church is perched near the top of Stanford Ranch Road near Rocklin and overlooks the Sacramento Valley.) Having photographed hundreds of weddings over the years, I was immediately struck, this could be a unique and classy location for an intimate outdoor ceremony.

Photo above: This beautiful 3/4 scale model of Chuck Yeager's P51 Mustang plane sat atop a "fake" control tower at Ace's Restaurant in Sacramento (at Interstate 80 & Madison by the Holiday Inn Holidome.) Notice how the control tower window shows Army Air Corps personnel dressed in World War II style uniforms!

I took this photo a few months before a rare micro-tornado damaged the airplane's fiberglass body. When the plane was taken down for repair, insurance company Nazis ordered the owners not to raise it back up again. It's current whereabouts are unknown to me.

Above photo: Noel Flynn's frame shop on Roseville's historic Vernon Street

I've used Noel's shop for framing services since 2004. He's bailed me out on several occasions when I was under time pressure to benefit a client. The first time was when Aaron Brothers told me I'd have to wait several days for them to do a 15 minute dry mounting job, and the client needed it done right away.

Noel Flynn is an artist as well as framer, highly skilled, and easy to work with.

Architectural image at leflt: Bold, beautiful art deco classic Denny's. Photo by Doug from a decade ago on older technology equipment.

Regrettably this Denny's is no longer there.

Above: Beautiful night view of US Navy training ship illuminated by a combination of electronic flash, floodlights and street lamps. I photographed this scene trying three different lighting arrangements and three different camera angles. The outcome results were okay, pretty good, and fantastic. Version above is the final choice. The Marriott hotel management for Liberty Station currently uses this image in their promo's (as of 2013).

Officially commissioned as the USS Recruit but Navy trainees called it the USS Neversail because it's anchored in concrete. There were three such training ship but this is the only surviving version, and is now an official historic site.
