This is a ride from Michael Jackson Neverland Ranch

I have been shooting the carnival rides at the state fair the past few
years. I was not going to go this year, but decided to go at the last minute when I notice the clouds. They always will add a dramatic effect to your pictures. See more California State fair photos here California State Fair

Sacramento Gold Rush Days

I attended the Sacramento Gold Rush Days over the Labor Day weekend. The streets of Old Sacramento are tranformed into scenes from the 1850. Its an interesting event that takes you back in time.

The gun fight is another interesting event that occurs during the Sacramento Gold rush Days.

Bodie's Swazey Hotel

I made the mistake of going to Bodie over the labor day weekend, it is one of Bodie's busiest weekends of the year. Although it was busy, I was able to get this photo of the Swazey hotel.
The weather was nice, around 70 degrees. There was a bit of excitment on the way to Bodie while driving through Monitor pass there was a single car roll over accident. The road was blocked for an hour while emergency crews remove the person from the wreckage. The driver escape with non life threatening injurys.
