My Town



For the past couple of weeks, I've been snapping pictures on my iPhone of my hometown for a friend who once used to live here. I wanted to show how Sacramento has changed over the years, and how it is still distinctively Sactown. In doing so, I started looking at my own neighborhood with new eyes- and instead of chronicling the typical souvenir shots of Sacramento, I started to see the details that make this particular place feel like home. I thought I'd share some of them with you. 
Enjoy my town!

  3. Sacramento loves Craftsman bungalows
  4. Cacti T Street
  5. Potato Vine
  6. Cottage living in Midtown
  7. Living Easy 
  8. Moss!
  9. Art Deco
  10. The Other Side of the Fence

The moss picture has such great detail I love the pictures, and I can not even believe they are from an I phone. I really need to upgrade.

Sacramento looks like one really interesting and beautiful place. Nice shots, great that they are not the typical postcard but more your own point of view.

You're very good with the foliage! I feel like watering some of those plants, they look so dimensional.

Marissa said...

Very nice! Before your FTF Community post, I really knew nothing about Sacramento, so it's nice to see some images. I'm also loving your floral sunglasses. :)

It's nice to see where you live in a new light. I feel like I'm doing the same now that my time here is coming to an end. I appreciate everything just a little bit more than I did before.

LOL, Lil Bits. You flatter me.
Yeah, we have an interesting hometown in a way- unique and then again, so oddly familliar. I love Midtown!

Tastes Eclectic Fashion said...

I love these kinds of hometown love posts. Makes me think I should tote my SLR around and do the same for Minneapolis!

I really love the mossy one. Actually I really love them all. Much better than touristy shots.

Wow, your town is so different from my town! The cacti are so cool. Thanks so much for sharing - it's such fun to be able to see a snapshot of someone else's home without leaving the comfort of my bedroom! :)
